Valentine's Day (the who-cares-iest of all the holidays) is right around the corner, so hopefully you've been saving up a Scrooge McDuck's vault's worth of gold to buy your significant other (or the body pillow that you call your "significant other") a proper gift. One particularly romantic option — if you're scrambling for something last minute — is an extravagant meal cooked in-home by a Michelin-starred chef. Turns out, you can have all this and more for only $93,300!
London-based company VeryFirstTo is offering the expensive dinner, which features duck eggs, truffles and Wagyu beef touched with silver leaf (served on a bed of dry ice — spooOOoooky) prepared by chef Adam Simmonds, as well as a harpist, a poet, doves and the option of a $27,000 bottle of wine. Ah, I get it — it's not just a dinner for extremely wealthy people. It's a dinner for extremely wealthy people with absolutely zero creativity when it comes to romantic gestures.
According to VeryFirstTo founder Marcel Knobil:
"We felt it was incumbent to offer something that was truly exceptional and where finance wasn't the issue, but what was the issue was the ultimate and extreme in romance...There are significant segments of consumers throughout many territories of the world who have a great amount of disposable income, and more and more are not as willing to buy luxury off the shelf. They would much rather have something that's bespoke."
What a relief! Someone's finally offering something exclusively to the very rich!
You know what kind of Valentine's Day meal I would pay $93,300 for? A plate of tacos served with a side $93,288. ROMANTIC. (**Cue "Careless Whisper"**)
