The world’s most expensive burger has been unveiled – and it may make you feel slightly ill.
Forget your double quarter pounder with cheese – the $1,768 “Glamburger” is a monstrous piece of culinary art consisting of a 280 gram meat patty, also containing black truffle brie, lobster, beluga caviar, venison and duck egg.
Oh, and we forgot to mention that there’s an edible gold leaf sitting pretty on top.
If the elaborate range of tastes and flavours doesn’t sit well with your palate, then you might want to look away before we reveal just how calorific this concoction is. The Glamburger packs a mighty punch to the gut, clocking in at 2,618 calories.
Suddenly, we’re not feeling so hungry for lunch.
The Glamburger was created by chef Chris Large in collaboration with Groupon, who wanted to do something extra special to mark the sale of their five-millionth food and drink voucher in Britain.
Large has said that he will give the Glamburger away free to the winner of a special competition that is set to run shortly.
Will you be putting your name into the hat?
Chef James Thomlinson has created burgers that taste as close as possible to human flesh as a promo for the fifth series of The Walking Dead.
James hasn’t tasted human meat himself of course, but based the recipe on descriptions of the taste of human flesh as described by cannibals.
“My food is inspired by flavour combinations and fresh produce, so it was a little odd to be inspired by the words of cannibals instead,” James explained.
The burgers are made with a mix of veal, chicken livers, bone marrow and pork in order to mimic the flavours described by cannibals, which range from veal to raw tuna.
The burgers will be given away for free in a pop-up shop in London called Terminus Tavern, with the location given away last on Twitter for those following #terminustavern.
You know what, we’re not feeling hungry…
Bradley Cooper shocked fans at the weekend when he was spotted flipping burgers in a fast food restaurant in the centre of London.
But fear not, our lovely Bradley has not fallen on hard times, but was instead preparing himself for his latest film role.
The actor was seen practicing his burger flipping skills on Sunday before he was pictured filming the scene yesterday.
An insider revealed that Bradley wanted to learn the “art of the flip”.
“Bradley was training alongside genuine Burger King staff. The aim was to learn the ‘art of the flip’ which he nailed fairly quickly. There was no real fanfare from him. You’d never know he was a big star by the way he spoke to people.”
Cooper plays a chef in his new movie, which has yet to be titled.
With all of this practice, we’ve no doubt that he’s mastered the art of flipping burgers already!
According to the video us Irish love a bit of champ (potatoes mashed with scallions and chives). I’m not sure where you’d find that after stumbling out of a club at 5am…sounds good though. Let’s start a petition!
