Have you ever dreamed of what you’d eat like if you won the lottery?

From hiring a personal chef to trying all of the best dishes around the world, here are the dishes we’d order if money way no object.

GOLD LEAF SUSHI

According to Guinness World Records, Angelito Araneta Jr’s five-piece special nigiri roll is officially the most expensive sushi in the world.

Forget toasted nori, his Norwegian pink salmon sushi is wrapped in gold leaf no less, before being crowned with African pearls. Costing around $1,978 for five slices – it comes in at nearly £1500 depending on if the exchange rate is on your side.

 

WHITE TRUFFLE AND GOLD PIZZA

Staying on the gold theme with this 24-carat gold leaf and white truffle pizza at Margo’s.

If you fancy this one, you’ll have to give them a week’s notice to make it (and that’s only if it’s truffle season). This white truffle and gold pizza can be found in Malta’s capital, Valletta.

 

WAGYU BEEF

Weighing in at around £150 per pound, wagyu beef is said to be amongst the best steak in the world. And people will pay the price for the luxury. The Japanese beef has to be reared a specific way to make the mark, with special feed to ensure the meat is marbled. It forms one of the ingredients in the famous $5000 Fleurburger in Las Vegas. Stacked up with lashings of foie gras, truffles, truffle sauce in a brioche bun, this £3445 feast is served up with a bottle of Chateau Petrus to wash it down.

CHOCOLATE EGG DESSERT

Coming in at almost £25,000 this could easily be a house deposit.

Found in the Lake District, this Easter treat is the handiwork of Marc Guibert, head chef at Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in Windermere, Cumbria. Unlike most chocolate eggs, it looks like it should be in the Faberge collection of a museum or gallery than on your dessert plate.

 

THE £225 AFTERNOON TEA

Speaking of dessert, this afternoon tea is £225 a head…

Executive Head Chef Carlos Martinez of Cliveden House, in Berkshire, has designed a feast which features some of the most expensive produce in the world. The extravagant menu is so expensive because of the rare Da Hong Pao Tea, harvested from 1000-year-old plants and costing more than £2,000 per kilogram.

To add to that, Beluga Caviar, at £4,000 per kilogram, adds to the luxurious spread.
