‘I never cook,’ says the man who dished up the Dhs25,000 beefburger in Dubai
Sarwat Nasir March 23, 2015
The man who flipped the world’s most expensive burger has revealed he is a complete stranger to the kitchen and “never cooks”.
Sheikh Mohammad bin Abdullah Al Thani put the dish together with his son Abdullah to raise money for the Pink Caravan breast cancer campaign.
Comprised of rare ingredients – including the finest Japanese wagyu beef and a 25-year-old balsamic roasted heirloom tomato – the meaty feast sold for $7,000 (Dhs25,712).
It was among several gourmet burgers auctioned for charity at the weekend.
Sheikh Mohammed, a businessman and member of Qatar’s royal family who lives in Sharjah, spoke to 7DAYS about how he crafted ‘Moe’s Ultimate Burger’.
It was prepared live in front of an audience at the Galleries Lafayette in Dubai Mall on Thursday to raise funds for breast cancer awareness.
Sheikh Mohammed said: “I never really cook – I don’t even cook at home.
“I rarely go into the kitchen. But it was fun cooking the burger live with my son and other teammates from the Pink Caravan – especially because it was for such a good cause.
“We asked people on social media what kind of burger we should prepare and we ended with this.”
And having received such a good response from bidders, Sheikh Mohammed joked: “Maybe I should open up my own burger joint now.”
Besides the well-aged tomato, other ingredients included a pink Himalayan salted Japanese wagyu, in-house smoked applewood aged cheddar, shaved white truffle, lettuce and pink peppercorn pickled onions.
And to top it off, Sheikh Mohammed said he used “the ultimate burger sauce” as well as beetroot and black sesame brioche.
The burger was snapped up by a team from the Sharjah Expo Centre, who were keen to support the cancer campaign.
Sheikh Mohammed revealed that when they phoned up to offer the Dhs25,000 for the burger they asked for a “take away”.
“We had to deliver it to them. I hope it stayed warm,” he added.
Fatema Showaiter, the Expo Centre staffer who ate the burger, said it created “enchantment” in her mouth.
The marketing manager told 7DAYSinDubai.com the burger was “sensational”, even though she couldn’t finish it off by herself.
She said: “When I took the first bite, there was a delicious fusion in my mouth. It was a true enchantment.
“But I did have a hard time finishing it by myself. It was a big portion. I shared the rest with my friend.”
The burger beat the old record, set in Las Vegas, which was sold for $5,000 (Dhs18,365).
Sheikh Mohammed is aambassador of Pink Caravan along with being the chairman of the department of Statistics and Community Development in Sharjah.
The burger grilling initiative was in support of Pink Caravan’s aim to spread the message about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
Pink Caravan raised a total of Dhs72,180 for the cause by the live cooking.
Sheikh Mohammed also sold one of his other burgers for Dhs7,800. The rest were made by other Pink Caravan volunteers.
The cash will go towards Pink Caravan’s nationwide breast cancer screening tour, which sees a mobile clinic offer free scans.
They have screened 2,481 people so far, including 577 men and 1,904 women.
