World’s most expensive pie

Dining

A chef in the UK has baked the world’s most expensive pie, costing more than a jaw-dropping £1,000 a slice.

The better-than-your-average steak and mushroom pie is made from £500 of beef, Chinese mushrooms worth more than a staggering £2,000 and truffles.

Its rich sauce is made with two bottles of 1982 vintage Chateau Mouton Rothschild wine costing more than £4,000, and the crust is topped with gold leaf.

The recipe was prepared by Spencer Burge, head chef at the Fence Gate Inn in Lancashire, UK.

The decadent pie cuts into eight slices, with a total cost of £8,195.

Kevin Berkins, owner of the Fence Gate Inn, said: “It started as a bit of silliness and quickly got out of control.

“It’s a very sophisticated pie. It’s like anything else, if you drive a Rolls-Royce, you know you are driving something prestigious.

“Not everyone’s going to order it, but it’s good for a special occasion if someone wants to be part of a real eating experience.”

And what do you wash the world’s most expensive pie down with? Forget the traditional pint of real ale, this pie comes served with Louis Roederer Cristal Rose champagne – costing £345 a bottle.

Bon appetit!
