Neiman Marcus has announced its annual list of super extra insanely expensive fantasy gifts, and included is this $250,000 dinner for ten prepared by none other than French Laundry Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud of DANIEL, Bocuse D’or co-founder Richard Rosendale, and Bocuse D’or 2013 team captain Jerome Bocuse. Yes, there are four zeros at the end of that price tag. But the money does go to the Bocuse d’Or USA Foundation, so: charity.
The dinner will take place at the purchaser’s home, so hope you have a nice kitchen. One lucky buyer also utilizes the party planning services of one Bertha Gonzalez, the first certified Maestra Tequilera and LA Times Magazine’s “First Lady of Tequila” from Casa Dragones. Also included in the meal: a tequila tasting with “personalized, engraved crystal bottles” for each diner. Here’s a video in which Thomas Keller and Maestra Tequila Bertha Gonzales discuss what two and a half hundred thousand dollars will get you.
