(Relaxnews) – A luxury, British website has created a once-in-a-lifetime epic travel itinerary that will take one couple to all 109, three-Michelin-starred restaurants around the world, for the cool sum of about $275,000.

It’s a six-month culinary odyssey that will take two people to the world’s top dining addresses across 12 countries, including Lung King Heen in Hong Kong, Sushi Yoshitake in Tokyo, Per Se in New York and Le Meurice in Paris.

Created by VeryFirstTo.com with www.holidaysplease.co.uk, participants will sample some of most iconic, famous and avant-garde dishes in contemorary gastronomy, such as “salmon poached in a liquorice gel” at Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck and “pineapple bubbles” at Juan Mari Arzak’s Basque restaurant Arzak. Visits will average one restaurant every other day.

According to the Michelin ranking system, restaurants that boast all three stars represent dining destinations which are “worth a special journey.” Dishes are nothing short of exceptional, distinctive and precisely executed and use superlative ingredients.

Between sampling the finest foods in the world, participants will also stay at five-star luxury hotels such as the Trump International in New York; the Conrad in Tokyo; the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo; and Claridge’s in London.

“This is a truly exceptional and sensational gourmet travel experience, it is by far the most lavish we have ever organised,” said Charles Duncombe of Holidaysplease.

The package includes the cost of flights.

Meanwhile, the around-the-world eating tour comes from the same luxury website that recently launched a $71,000 package for pooches that includes a personal chef, surfing lessons, spa treatments and a stay at the luxurious Paw Seasons hotel for dogs in Bristol, England.

They also sold a luxury vacation package worth $1.5 million to a wealthy Chinese man this past spring that will take him to all 962 UNESCO World Heritage Sites over two years.

The Four Seasons has also created once-in-a-lifetime travel itineraries that include an around-the-world tour with stops in Bali, Bora Bora and Hawaii in 2014, while National Geographic has likewise launched an excursion and guided tour of ancient and historical sites aboard a luxury jet next year.
