(Yes, that's a real school.)

Alas, while Lauren and I were traveling in the US, we missed the chance to taste the world's most expensive sandwich: £100 worth of "rare Wagyu beef, the finest fresh duck foie gras, black truffle mayonnaise, brie de meaux, rocket, red pepper and mustard confit with English plum tomatoes in a sour dough bread."

As Selfridge's points out, "for real food lovers this represents a remarkable value." By failing to purchase one of these--or, indeed, dozens of these--value sandwiches, we have displayed a shameless disregard for frugality. Where will we ever get rare Wagyu beef at such a reasonable price?
