A juicy burger has sold at a charity auction in Dubai… for $10,000.
Asma Al Fahim, founder of Dubai lifestyle magazine Villa 88, phoned in the winning bid.
The giant burger contained seven beef patties — one for each of the emirates in the United Arab Emirates — aged cheddar cheese and veal bacon strips in a saffron brioche bun.
It was prepared by Russell Impiazzi, culinary director at Le Gourmet in Dubai’s Galeries Lafayette, and a member of Qatar’s royal family, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani.
“Two years ago we broke the world record by selling one burger for $7,000, and this year we wanted to top that,” Al Thani said in a statement. “All proceeds will go to breast cancer awareness and free detection at an earlier stage.”
