When it comes to serving luxury Valentine's Day meals, you'd naturally expect to find many first class recipes on a restaurant's menu. But the bar for quality in the world of fine dining has just been lifted right out of sight thanks to Michelin star chef Adam Simmonds who has devised an eight-course menu on behalf of GreatBritishChefs.com. He describes the menu as the ultimate "no expense spared" luxury dining experience. In total the meals cost a whopping £61.000. But what could possibly comprise such a meal?
This meal boasts £3.000 pounds worth of almus white caviar, a range of delicious South Sea oysters, including pearls priced at £6,000, and a large amount of edible gold leaf totalling £2,000.
The menu also boasts a range of other delights such as Bluefin tuna, although this is a controversial decision for Simmonds to make as many wildlife campaigners assert that Bluefin are nearing extinction. However, Simmonds has prepared another course in case of diners' objections, which contains Pickled Mackerel, Cucumber, Horseradish and Charcoal.
These may sound like pretty random ingredient for a chef to just throw together on a menu, but Simmonds has actually rather cleverly chosen a nobler of foods that are known to be effective aphrodisiacs with qualities similar to that of Viagra. Guaranteed to make Valentines a day more loved up!
But wait, there's more!
The menu also boasts all kinds of other rare and expensive delicacies, such as confit foie gras, smoked eel, rissotto with carbineros prawns, saffron, silver leaf and caviar roe.
Just to make things even more interesting, the desert menu contains gourmet vanilla and smoked chocolate with kopi luwak ice cream, providing a delicious finale to a truly exquisite meal.
Simmonds has claimed: 'Each dish has been created with romance in mind and to allow the spectacular ingredients to work their magic, in both creating delicious food and the perfect mood for romance.'
And to drink..?
If the food sounds luxurious, wait until you see the range of drinks on offer! First class wines and champagnes including a £17,000 bottle of La Romanee-Conti wine, and a £3.000 bottle of 1976 Salon Blanc de Blancs. In total the wine list costs a huge £30,700.
Creating the atmosphere
A Valentine's Day meal is not just about the food and drink though, it's just as much about the setting and atmosphere. Restaurants serving' menu also plan to cater for couples by supplying a range of romantic dining ideas which include covering dinner tables in rose petals, lighting rose scented candles, and providing romantic live harp music.
Any Valentine's Day meal should be an exquisite dining experience, but this menu is surely the one by which all others should be compared.
