While most of us will settle for the occasional pizza or bar of chocolate, the word ‘treat’ means something completely different for those who can actually afford the most expensive dishes in the world. Some of the items we will soon talk about aren’t exactly easy to come by, nor are they affordable enough for most of us to eat. Needless to say, most of these dishes aren’t just expensive for the sake of being expensive but they’re presumably extremely tasty as well.
We never really had the pleasure of trying them to know for sure, but let’s presume from their pricing that they’re just as exquisite as those who tried them claim. Long story short, here are the ten most luxurious foods in the world right now.
10Jamon Iberico de bellota
Sold for almost $100 per pound, the Iberian Acorn-fed Ham is without a doubt one of the most luxurious on the planet. The reason why this particular dish is so exquisite is because the black Iberian pigs from which it’s made are raised in a slum area along the Spanish-Portuguese border and are fed nothing but acorns. As a result, the meat retains the earthiness of the acorns, a meat that is usually subjected to salting for two weeks before being cured for a total of three years.
