A pre-Christmas Fine Food Auction that took place in Paris offered to the fastidious more than a 100 lots for sale. Gourmets, restaurant owners and connoisseurs of fine food from many countries in the world came together to fight for purchasing exclusive foods that can’t be found in the next shop.
Among the lots of the auction were super tender beef that was kept in a cool storeroom for three months to come to, tea of Tibetan monks, balsamic vinegar that has been mellowing in oak barrels since 1947, black truffles, eggs consisting almost wholly from yolk, a rare variety of coffee, citrus fruits that can be eaten with their skin, as well as many other marvelous and unique goodies.
All the lots went quickly and at exorbitant prices. It proves the worth of foods made manually by ancient recipes in the age of mass fast food production. People vote with money for quality food.
