Blog: Hot beef

Catherine Sleep | 11 April 2006

What is WITH this weather? One minute I’m donning flip flops and taking hay fever tablets, the next I’m digging a path to the road with the snow shovel. Six inches of snow in an hour and half. In southern England. In April.

It’s enough to make you want a nice hot beef sandwich. How about the McDonald sandwich, on sale at Selfridges? Made with ingredients including Wagyu beef, fresh lobe foie gras and black truffle mayonnaise, this 2000-calorie sandwich is most definitely not to be confused with any offering emanating from the global fastfood chain with a somewhat similar name.

Its creator denies that it’s a ‘sandwich for snobs’, a claim sadly belied by its £85 price tag. Not only bad for your waistline, it’s not going to do your bank account any favours either. But hey, it’s a lifestyle thing.

"Care to remortgage your house with that, Sir?"
