Chef creates world's most expensive pie


Recommended Posts




A CHEF has baked the world's most expensive pie costing more than ?1,000 a slice, it was revealed today.


The traditional steak and mushroom ingredients have been replaced by a ?500 beef fillet, Chinese mushrooms worth more than ?2,000 and truffles.


The recipe includes two bottles of 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild red wine costing more than ?4,000 and the pie comes topped with gold leaf.



The pie cuts into eight slices and the total cost is ?8,195.


It is served with Louis Roederer Cristal Rose champagne - costing ?345 a bottle - instead of the traditional pint of real ale.




Kevin Berkins, who owns the Fence Gate Inn near Burnley, Lancashire, where the pie was created, said you could really taste the difference.


"It started as a bit of silliness and quickly got out of control," he said.


"It's a very sophisticated pie. It's like anything else, if you drive a Rolls-Royce, you know you are driving something prestigious."


"Not everyone's going to order it but it's good for a special occasion if someone wants to be part of a real eating experience."
