Fine Dining

There’s nothing more luxurious than to dine at the finest restaurants, and eat the world’s finest cuisine prepared from the rarest ingredients by the best Michelin-starred chefs. The only thing that may come close is to have your own private Michelin-starred chef at your home.

Truffles are synonymous with opulence, since these rare expensive fungi are used so sparingly in fine cuisine. They can sell for over $14,000 per kilogram. The most expensive and rarest variety is the Italian White Alba truffle. You should stock up on this delicacy to give a touch of class to your late night grilled cheese sandwiches. You could also settle for the somewhat less expensive black truffle, if you don’t mind being the laughing stock of your neighbourhood.

Caviar is another must-have for your mansion’s pantry. Although it is an indulgence best enjoyed with champagne, it is also delicious on top of your Eggs Benedict at breakfast. Beluga caviar is the most expensive and is highly sought after, usually trading at anything from $7,000 to $10,000 per kilogram. The most expensive variety is the pearly white Almas caviar, which comes from Iranian beluga fish. It’s the rarest kind available, and costs up to $35,000 per kilogram.

For carnivores, nothing beats the delight of a well aged steak cooked to perfection, paired with a glass of good red wine. Expensive palates need expensive steaks, but your local butcher most likely won’t be able to supply your needs. What you need is Kobe beef, the most expensive beef in the world. This well-marbled delicacy is very rare outside of Japan and nearby Asian countries, as only about 3,000 head of cattle produced it per year around the Kobe region. A whole sirloin steak of real Kobe beef can set you back over $350 in a steakhouse!
