It contained 17kg of deliciously flavourful, deep-grey Empress caviar, the world’s only fully certified organic caviar from native-raised sturgeon, which has been called “an organic culinary masterpiece.”
The Guinness World Records world record for the most expensive of all caviar, and indeed the world’s most expensive food is ‘Almas’, from the Iranian Beluga fish – 1 kg (2 lb 3 oz) of this ‘black gold’ is regularly sold for £20,000 (then $34,500).
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most expensive sushi; it costs 91,800 Phillipino Pesos (£1,313.88, $1,978.15) for five pieces of nigiri garnished with diamonds and wrapped in 24-karat gold leaf produced by chef Angelito Araneta Jr. (Phillipines).

Lucky guests had the opportunity to partake in the world’s largest serving of caviar using custom-engraved mother-of-pearl spoons, produced to commemorate the occasion.
As part of the record-guidelines and GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS requirements, the entire portion of caviar had to be completely consumed, allowing guests to enjoy the luxurious tastes of the caviar.
