World’s (Second) Most Expensive Pie

If you’re a fan of the superfluous, than this overly-decadent and questionably tasty pie is for you.

Paul Medcalf, executive chef at The Lord Dudley Hotel in Paddington, Australia has dubbed the expensive baked good “The Posh Pie.”

According to Fox News, the pie is “made from two different premium beef cuts from butcher David Blackmore, two Western Australian rock lobsters and rare Winter Black truffles. The whole concoction is then coated with 23 carat German gold leaf and smothered in two bottles of Penfolds Grange Reserve.”

That damn gold leaf topping. While we’ve never had the pleasure of experiencing what gold leaf tastes like, we’d have to assume the dish would probably be just as good in taste if you stripped it of the pretentiousness.

We digress. The truffle and gold ingredients give the pie a dollar value of $9,484, making it the second most expensive pie ever.

Yes, there’s literally a pie out there that costs more than that and it, in fact, holds the world record for most expensive pie at $15,820. Made with two bottles of red wine that together cost almost eight grand, it’s not hard to see why.
