Is This the World's Most Expensive Christmas Dinner?

If you think experimental chef Heston Bluementhal is overcharging for his festive meal at The Fat Duck in Bray (£300/person) you might need to sell your house to try Ben Spalding's version of a traditional Christmas Dinner.

The 25-year-old head chef at John Salt has put together a meal that costs a shocking £125,000 for four people and uses some of the most expensive ingredients on the planet like a 150-year-old balsamic vinegar, Dodine of rare breed turkey, a whole poached white truffle from Alba, Akbari pistachio nuts, beans of coffee berries excreted by the Asian Palm Civet cat and a £2,600 Densuke watermelon.

Order the meal online from VeryFirstTo.com and Spalding will spend Christmas Day cooking it himself in your kitchen. He has also promised to donate 80% of his fee to charity. It's the season of giving after all.
