Thailand's $25,000 Dinner

Thailand's $25,000 Dinner

First of all, if I was awesome, this post would have been called "One Night in Bangkok," but sadly someone else already used it. Since I'm not that awesome, I'm going to just cut to the chase. This past Saturday night 40-some high-rolling diners headed to Bangkok, Thailand for a 10-course, $25,000 meal.

Yes, I said $25,000. Per person.

To learn what would make a meal worth $25,000,



Branded with the name "Epicurean Masters of the World," the dinner was cooked by six 3-star Michelin chefs (four from France, one from Germany and one from Italy). The meal consisted of intricate items such as "tartar of Kobe beef with Imperial Beluga caviar and Belon oysters," "couquille Saint-Jacques and truffles," and "mousseline of 'pattes rouges' crayfish with morel mushroom infusion."

Oh and those truffles I just mentioned? Each plate contained 3 1/2 ounces, that's $350 of truffles on each plate. Think that's decadent? The evening's wine cost more than $200,000.

Ultimately, the event was for charity, (most of the profits will go to Medecins Sans Frontieres and the Chaipattana Foundation, a rural development program set up by the king of Thailand) and consisted of 15 paying guests and 25 invited guests. Tell me, how can I get on the next guest list!?

Thanks to GiggleSugar for the tip. I think it was her way of saying thanks for the inflatable swan I found for her.
