So I was thinking to myself, ‘Sure, I enjoy truffles and foie gras, but shouldn’t I find something else that is delicious, expensive and often difficult to find?’
So I tried some of this Balik smoked salmon (16 GBP) at Caviar House & Prunier in Heathrow’s Terminal Five, that den of indulgence that hits you right when you’re tired and still figuring out currency conversion. To be fair, I’d just spent the week in Sweden and was planning to eat salmon every day of my life anyway (I assume that’s how all those model citizens get their hair/faces/personalities so shiny), but my, won’t this be expensive. Creamy, smooth, melt-in-your-mouth expensive.
On the plus side, I still have no interest in caviar, cheap or premium.
