FORKING IT OVER
Food and beverages sell for exorbitant prices at auctions all the time. The reasons for the sky-high bids vary. Sometimes the item is a luxury good that the public will pay a lot for in a restaurant, it may be an item with an interesting tie to history, or it could be a one-of-a-kind product. Often, interesting food items are sold at charity auctions where the rich and famous are happy to plunk down tens of thousands for a good cause. No matter the reason for purchase, all of these expensive food items have interesting stories and backgrounds to discover.
