The World’s Most Expensive Valentine’s Dinner Will Cost You 1 Million Rand

For those looking to impress this Valentine’s Day, here’s a dinner that will run you a cool £61,000 (US $99, 594.70) or (R 1 million). In collaboration with, British luxury site VeryFirstTo offers what the Daily Meal claims to be the most expensive Valentine’s Day menu on Earth.

Michelin-starred chef Adam Simmonds (formerly of Danesfield House) created the eight-course menu for “no expense-spared” romantics. The meticulously extravagant menu includes “aphrodisiac-infused” components like Alums white caviar with a price tag of nearly $5000, gold leaf worth more than $3000 and Native South Sea oyster pearls at almost $10,000.

Looking to emphasize the menu’s theme of exclusivity and rarity, Pacific bluefin tuna also make the list — a species many wildlife activists say are as close to extinction as the white rhino. Of course, throughout the dinner, only the most rare and beautiful wines will be poured including a $ 27, 755.90 bottle of 1990 La Romanee-Conti, Domaine de la Romanee-Conti.
