Creme fraiche, caviar, and really expensive truffle shavings that drop to the floor.

    Well at least he didn’t put ketchup on the thing. Ketchup on a hotdog is just plain wrong and evil.

  2. Sid,

    What’s with the gloves? Is there a problem with using bare hands if they’re washed?

  3. outeast,

    It strikes me as cheating to put all that expensive stuff in there.

  4. Rich,

    Yeah, they tend to that for lots of these “records” and it seems like cheating to me too. How to beat the World Record? Just add more truffle (or gold leaf, or serve it in a diamond encrusted dish that the customer gets to keep, or…).

  5. Mike K,

    What constitutes a “hot dog”? He said “all-beef hot dog”, but that looked more to me like a Bridgeford beef stick.

    • Rampage_Rick,

      For it to be called a hot dog, doesn’t it require 8% squirrel meat by weight?

    Well, I gotta say… the “presentation” that they were discussing is really quite terrible. Not sure why they’d go to the trouble when the serving-product is really poor. The spanish black caviar – really – just looks like rat turds on top of the creme fraiche. Awful.

  8. Matt,

    So, then it’s only a few dollars more than a regular ballpark hotdog?

  9. kory,

    aside from the truffle shavings, none of those things sound like they would taste good on a hotdog. $5 in ingredients that don’t go together, and an $80 pricetag for some jackass with more money than brains…..
