World's most expensive Thanksgiving dinner

No skimping on the sides
No skimping on the sides

Sweet potatoes, stuffing, pumpkin pie and other Thanksgiving fundamentals are relatively easy to make and usually affordable.

To really knock your guests' socks off with truly excessive thankfulness, try following in the steps of Spencer Burge, chef at the Fence Gate Inn in the U.K. Chef Burge had an idea for a pie that would not resemble any pie you've had before. You'd probably realize as much from the gold leaf adorning the top or the price tag of about $13,000.

"It started as a bit of silliness and quickly got out of control," Kevin Berkins, the owner of the inn, told the BBC.

Trying to concoct this at home would only save so much, as the ingredients call for 5.5 pounds of Wagyu beef (about $890), two bottles of 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild (about $3,000), 3.5 ounces of winter black truffle (about $350) and about $500 of the gold leaf.

You shouldn't cut this pastry masterpiece with just any old blade. Coltellerie Berti's Insieme cutlery collection will not only make it feel like you're cutting through butter, but each piece comes with a magnetized block of wood for safe usage and storage. Pick up a boning knife, carving knife and carving fork for about $1,200.
