Breakfast Sandwich Worth $120 Debuts In Australia
Call it the breakfast of champions or the breakfast of millionaires, but at $120 a pop, a restaurant in Sydney is certainly stepping up the game for many in international cooking schools when it comes to morning sandwiches.
Carla Jones, the chef at 4Fourteen, made several new breakfast sandwiches for a special menu in honor of the Australian pork industry’s “Bacon Week.” Some included standard fine-dining fare like bacon, smoked tomatoes, English cheddar and pan-fried duck eggs. However, one of her creations took many dishes inspired by culinary school programs to a whole new level when it comes to decadence.
The over-the-top sandwich – which is available for one week only – includes foie gras, caviar, creme fraiche and shaved truffles. Not to be outdone, the sandwich is also served with a side of chips drizzled with shaved truffle oil. Jones believes that this culinary delight will be a hit despite its hefty price tag.
“It’s not something I ever thought I’d be doing but it will be interesting to see how many we’ll sell,” she said. “I reckon some people will buy it just to see what it’s like. I’m not sure I’d eat it – I’m not that into truffles and stuff like that.”
