80 Foods That Cost Over $1,000

You might as well put diamonds in your mouth.

There’s comfort food, there’s “I got promoted” food, and then there’s mind-blowing, outrageously priced extravagance.

For mere mortals like us, just seeing these decadent food items spread out on a table is an experience in and of itself. (Except when it’s Gordon Ramsay doing the reveal, in which case you’ll be doing a dinner service while enduring verbal abuse.)

Here’s some food for thought: Why exactly are these dishes and drinks so expensive? Is it because they’re made from rare ingredients (no, not that kind of rare)? Or is it simply because they reflect the preferences of society’s top 5%?

We’ll tell you this much right now: If we could afford moose cheese and Screaming Eagle wine on the regular, we’d elevate our taste buds, too.
