The World’s Most Luxurious Foods
From caviar and white truffles to a rare delicacy culled from the rivers of Spain’s Basque country, these are the globe’s most opulent dining indulgences.
These days the term “delicacy,” a descriptor for anything rare, expensive, unusual or just plain gross, is overused. Here, we stick to the most desirable extravagances that don’t challenge the palate (or one’s eating bravery). We look into why caviar prices are hard to pin down or how the connoisseurship of truffles can depend on nuanced terminology. We explore quality over imitation, where to find the best offerings, and what exactly makes these delicacies so darn tasty.
