The world's most expensive Christmas dinner menu has been revealed, coming in at a total of £125,000.

Devised by London Chef Ben Spalding, the menu is for four people and will be prepared by the chef and his team at the guests' home.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the meal will include a Densuke watermelon worth £2,600, 150-year-old balsamic vinegar costing £1,030, and Almas caviar at £5,000.

The focal point of the meal is a Dodine turkey with Wagyu beef fillet and heart, wrapped in gold leaf and sprinkled with Akbari pistachios.

Accompanying the feast will be a variety of wines including a £37,000 bottle of Piper Heidsieck 1907 champagne, served in diamond-studded flutes.

Spalding, who has completed residencies at Heston Blumenthal's flagship restaurant The Fat Duck and Gordon Ramsay's establishment on Royal Hospital Road, is selling the meal through the site VeryFirstTo.com, which specialises in offering one-off events and experiences around the world.

Spalding will donate 80% of his sizeable fee to Cancer Research UK and Hospitality Action.
