If you’re rich, obsessed with food, and interested in ancient cultures, this is the chance of a lifetime. The same folks that brought you the $25,000 dinner are flying in the world’s top chefs to cook a meal in front of the ancient Pyramids of Giza.
This is part of a series of dinners titled “Epicurean Masters of the World.”
The pyramid feast will be less than $10,000 per person — a price that pales in comparison to last month’s 25-grand-a-head meal — but will seat 500 instead of only 40. 30 3-star Michelin chefs will each cook for 17 diners using a half-a-mile kitchen set up in front of the pyramids.
All profits from the meal will go to charity, as did those from the $25,000 dinner. This time — potentially in an effort to get UNESCO (the U.N.’s cultural body) to let them closer to architectural wonders — the organizers are considering donating profits to a charity that deals with conserving the Seven Wonders of the World.
The event is set for December 12, 2008, so mark your calendars accordingly.
