£40 jacket potato is the world's most expensive

275x250.jpgThe humble jacket potato has been given a gastronomic make-over by a foodie chef who is selling them for £40 each.

Ben Kingdon says his 'Tuxedo spud' creation - which is topped with a spoonful of luxurious Italian caviar - justifies the cost with an unbeatable taste.

It comes served on a wooden board with roasted vine tomatoes and features creme fraiche, lemon, chives and spring onions in addition to the pricey caviar.

And bosses at Cary Arms, in Torquay, Devon - which launched the dish to weeks ago - say several people have already splashed the cash on the lavish spud.

Customers are described as being "affluent people wanting to try something different" -- we have a gold-plated tin of baked beans with their name on.

"It is obviously quite a pricey dish but our clientele are looking for something extra special and we are in the perfect location beside the sea to serve this dish especially on a lovely day on our sun terraces.  

"We are using the best Italian White Sturgeon Calvisius Caviar, which also makes it more expensive, as to buy a 50g tin is about £100.
