From the folks who brought you the $25,000-a-head luxury dinner in Thailand comes a new feast for the fancy. This time, at a mere $10,000 a head, it’s practically affordable.
The dinner will take place in Egypt, served against a backdrop of the Pyramids of Giza. According to an article in the Associated Press, the meal will be prepared by 30 chefs, each with three Michelin stars to their credit. “A kitchen half a mile long will be set up against the backdrop of the pyramids with equipment and the best ingredients jetted in from around the world.”
These dinners, billed as “Epicurean Masters of the World,” are organized by Deepak Ohri, managing director of Bangkok’s Lebua luxury hotel. He points out that, even with the reduced price tag, the dinner is still for high-rolling gourmands. “It will still be for millionaires, but this dinner will be for a lot of millionaires.” They plan to sell 500 tickets to the event, the profit of which goes to charity.
The event will not take place until December 2008. If you start saving your spare change now, you just might be able to pull it off.
