近日,一个为卡塔尔王室成员准备的汉堡竟然在迪拜售价高达1万美元(约合人民币7万元)!这可能是有史以来最昂贵的汉堡了。

该汉堡中包含藏红花和7层肉饼,分别代表7个酋长国,其它填料还包括酿熟的切达干酪和牛肉培根条。除了用料精细、做法考究外,该汉堡被卖出“天价”的另一个原因是,卡塔尔王室的一位成员亲自下厨并参与汉堡制作。

迪拜生活杂志《Villa 88》的创刊人通过电话参与竞拍,叫价8000美元(约合人民币5.5万元)。虽然听起来有点奢侈浪费,但卖汉堡的金额都将全部捐给一家乳腺癌慈善机构。该卡塔尔王室成员、汉堡的所有者说:“2015年,我们曾以7000美元(约合人民币4.8万元)的高价将汉堡卖出,打破了世界纪录。今年,我们希望创造新高。”

据悉,该汉堡与其他三样菜肴一起拍卖,筹集善款近3万美元(约合人民币21万元)。

 

A seven-layered bacon cheeseburger prepared by a member of the Qatari royal family has become perhaps the most expensive ever sold.

The mammoth meal commanded the huge asking price because Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani, a member of Qatar’s royal family, helped out with the cooking.

Top chef and culinary director at Dubai’s Le Gourmet Russell Impiazzi prepared the burger alongside the Sheikh.

For the huge price tag the buyer got seven beef patties, one to represent each of the emirates, topped with aged cheddar cheese and veal bacon strips served in a saffron brioche bun.

Asma Al Fahim, founder of Dubai lifestyle magazine Villa 88, phoned in the winning £8,000 bid

While it may seem like the ultimate extravagance, all the money went to a good cause. The proceeds went to breast cancer charity Pink Caravan, which raises awareness of the disease.

 

Sheikh Al Thani said: ‘Two years ago we broke the world record by selling one burger for $7,000, and this year we wanted to top that.

‘All proceeds will go to breast cancer awareness and free detection at an earlier stage.’

Ms Al Fahim said she bid the large amount because she wanted to support a good cause and honor former Pink Caravan director Ameera bin Karam, who died in a house fire last year.

The pricey burger was one of four that were auctioned, alongside several other dishes, raising almost $30,000.
