Oh, this? It's just Deca’s new limited-edition Zillion Dollar Grilled Cheese. No, no, it doesn't cost a zillion dollars, silly, it costs... $100?!?!? True story, the now-priciest grilled cheese in Chicago (and maybe the Midwest?) features everything from 24-karat gold flakes to 100yr-aged balsamic vinegar.
And because you're totally curious, we got Deca to put together this dollar-by-dollar breakdown of the sandwich:
The sandwich starts with two slices of sourdough bread topped with aged Wisconsin cheddar in a pan of Laudemio Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi olive oil that's $39 per bottle.
An heirloom tomato is sliced up and covered with 100yr-aged balsamic vinegar that’s $443 per 50ml. So basically, a little bowl of super-old vinegar = XBOX One.
Straight from Southern Spain, the black Iberico ham is made from free-roaming, acorn-fed pigs (you thought Kobe cattle had it easy). The meat’s been air-dried for six weeks, cured for a year, and sliced thin onto the grilled cheese.
You had to have known that foie gras was going to be on the guest list for this party, especially when it's a $32-per-pound duck liver from Hudson Valley.
