Australia’s obsession with the meat pie has reached unbelievable heights, with unveiling of a pie worth a whopping $12,000. Creation has been certified by world record site RecordSetter as being The Most Expensive ‘Surf & Turf’ Pie in the World! It took three weeks for Chef Paul Medcalf to design the pie in his kitchen in The Lord Dudley Hotel in Paddington – Sydney’s affluent east.
This so-called posh pie has been created in partnership with Groupon Australia who developed this idea to celebrate sale of 2 millionth food/drink voucher.
This surf-and-turf pie contains David Blackmore’s $180kg wagyu eye-fillet with a marble score of 9, Japanese Kobe brisket at $35-40kg cooked for 12 hours, two WA rock lobsters, dried Italian porcini mushrooms, two $750 bottles of Penfolds Grange gravy, housemade golden puff pastry and scattered with German gold leaf and shaved French truffles which retail for about $180 a truffle.
If this pie is too expensive for you, but you want to taste it, a Groupon organized the competition to win a taste of the #PoshPie completely free of charge. You can enter the competition on their website.
