Feeling peckish? Maybe try one of these, the world’s most expensive treats. Think caviar and truffles – these rare foods are culinary delights you might now get to try every day, or ever.
Edible gold leaf
Like iron and calcium, gold can also be ingested by humans. Even though it is super pricey, edible gold leafs are often incorporated into fancy desserts to ad that something special.
Often served with risotto (above), white truffles are delicious shaved and in oil. Their high price is due to their unpredictable growth habits. White truffles, also known as Alba truffles, are the rarest and therefore the most expensive.
Also known as Wagyu, this melt-in-your-mouth beef comes from Wagyu cattle raised in the Hyogo region of Japan. Foodies and meat lovers swear by this flavourful beef.
Synonymous with luxury, caviar comes primarily from sturgeon that live in the Caspian Sea. Beluga caviar is thought to be the best.
Civer Coffee (Kopi Luwak)
This is of course the liver of a force-fed duck or goose. Yes, force-fed with feeding corn to make that liver plump up.
