Incremental: Up, up, up!

A few years ago, when we were in London, we visited Harrod’s. Not everything was unaffordable but we were stunned by the prices of the meat.

As you look higher up the board, the cuts become more and more expensive until you reach the Wagyu ribeye at the incredible price of £33.00.


More incredible still, if you look closely at the board you’ll see that this is per 100 grams.

At today’s exchange rate, that’s about $530/kilo in Australian currency.

Ouch! I’ve never wanted a piece of steak that badly.

Even the T-bone works out to about $160/kilo, and that’s a pretty standard cut here in Oz and fairly affordable at about $21/kilo.
