Those weren't coffee grinds in the bottom of the cup, just kitty litter.

My wife's stupid cat once took a dump in my coffee cup and I poured coffee over it (and drank it).
Now I look down on poor people.

I love turkey heart. I'm the only one in the family that does, and if I don't make a point my mother won't add it along with the liver(for thanksgiving). Some people don't know the best parts are the sweet breads.

I dont know what all that shiat should cost, but the stuff i do know seems marked up about 100x. 180 pounds for dry ice is like 360 bucks. I think you can get like a hundred pounds for that.

Akbari Pistachios are regular pistachios grown in India/Iran. Unless you're getting a few tons, that's one hell of a ripoff price. Alibaba sells them for 750$ a ton.

How are you getting the thymus glands out of the turkey? Or are you talking about the pancreas?

I do agree though, if anything the giblets, left to simmer for 5-6 hours in a small pot with some water makes some of the greatest broth known to man. Though it always pains me to get rid of the liver because turkey liver makes a GREAT pate.

No.

It's purely for appearance, adds nothing good to flavor.

Actually, this whole dinner is pretty much designed to separate fools from money. The ingredients are ridiculously expensive, but the preparation sounds marginal at best.

I really have to wonder about wagyu heart, since heart is generally tough and has to be cooked a long time to make it edible and the only reason to spend the money on wagyu is because of the marbling, would that be any good at all? I'm thinking it's either not going to be terribly marbled, at which point it's going to be there just for the expense, or it's going to be marbled, in which case it's going to be kind of nasty after the long cooking process that will still have to happen on such a heavily used muscle.

And a whole truffle? With saffron? Really?

Oh, and I'm not drinking catshiat coffee. I don't care if it's the best flavor in the world, I'm not drinking it. And I'm pretty sure it's not going to be the best flavor in the world, it's still going to taste like coffee.

It's pretty messed up that at the same time we have children dying of hunger every day.

And catshiat coffee is farking stupid. Seriously, if I knew anyone who drank it IRL I would smack them right in the face.

You *can* cook heart fairly quick, but it requires a pressure cooker. On the upside, the pressure tenderizes the muscle a bit. My mom used to slow roast heart for hours and hours and hours until it would darn near melt in your mouth.

For that price you'd think they could find a better shill to write the stupid article. What a hack. Lost me at the very first sentence when they said most people have Brussels sprouts, tangerines, etc. on my Christmas shopping list. Annoyed me so much by repeating "cat poo" and "Civet cat". It's not a cat dickwad, but I do hope you get a chance to ingest some cat crap, you no talent hack. Die! I hope your head catches on fire so I can NOT piss on it.

The reason for eating gold is that your poop comes out wrapped like a baked potato.

That's right. Rich people even shiet better than you.

That's been going on for at least a few years in Japan. Article

It turns out the manufacturers aren't being that thorough with filtering their waste streams.

Really? £2,000 for vodka? It's Vodka. Same goes for the dry ice. I don't know about the rest of this, but that's absurd.

People, you need to chill out about the cost of the dry ice. It's not regular peoples' dry ice like you get at the store. This is extra dry, dry ice extracted from the frozen bowels of Siberian mammoths.

A bunch of things are priced absurdly. Akbari pistachios are normal pistachios, and as I said earlier, you buy a literal ton of them off alibaba for 750$.

Pullet de bresse? Yeah, that's french for chicken breast. So a bunch of chicken breasts that you boil in water with 10$ worth of saffron (sorry, I can buy tablespoon packs of spanish saffron from our local lebanese store for ~5$) to make a stock. Some of these prices are simply ludicrous.

Diva vodka is literally just normal filtered vodka that comes in a vessel which has a tube of precious stones going down the center. It ranges from 3800$ to over a million a bottle (depending what you have in the center tube).

The white alba truffles you can get for 250$ an ounce. The other booze and caviar are probably legit prices though.

Just because it's full of expensive ingredients doesn't mean it's good. Something tells me Gordan Ramsay would have something to farking say about this twat and his menu.

50-carat gold leaf

I'm pretty sure that doesn't exist.

and even if this is based on carat weight rather that purity, that much gold leaf will run about $600
