Chef invents 1,000 meat pie

A Burnley restaurant has made the world's most expensive meat pies - at 1,000 each.
They were made with some of the world's most expensive meat and mushrooms so rare they are grown under armed guard.
And the pies, made by chefs at Burnley's Fence Gate Inn, were topped with edible gold leaf, reports the Mirror.
The pies were made specially after eight regulars challenged owner Kevin Berkins, 57, to create an "upmarket" pie.
He paid 500 for tender Wagyu fillet of beef which comes from cattle raised in such a relaxed state they are even given massages.
He then bought Matsutake mushrooms from China - which sell for 500 a kilo and have to be harvested under guard.
Those were combined with 200 a kilo French Bluefoot mushrooms and equally pricey rare Winter Black Truffles.
The gravy was made with two whole bottles of vintage 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild wine at 1,000 a go.
Finally, the pastry for Kevin's 'Golden Bon Vivant' pie was covered with edible gold leaf, costing 100 a sheet.
Kevin said: "They wanted something special and they loved it. It started off as a bit of fun, then we got into it. We just went for the best."

I would have selected the 1972 Chateau Mouton Rothschild myself....
And a Spa visit for the Wagyu Cattle....tends to be alil' tuff if you don't!
