When a café owner told friends he wanted to make the world’s most expensive bacon butty they thought he was telling porkies.
However, Paul Philips has proved them wrong by dishing up the ultimate GB£150 (US$ 240) bourgeois breakfast bap in a bid to raise money for worthy causes – and hopefully a place in the record books.
The Bacon Bling sandwich consists of seven rashers of rare-breed pig, truffle spread, water cress, free range egg, sliced truffles, saffron and edible gold dust, all cooked in truffle oil.
‘Each one is expensive to make but I’ll keep doing it forever if it means raising money for charity,’ said the 41-year-old owner of Tangberry’s coffee house in Cheltenham, UK.
