Bill of the Week is coming out of retirement for a special appearance today. But contrary to its predecessors, which regularly toted up the price of umpteen bottles of Krug and countless Grey Goose martinis, this bill is all about frugality. One might call it a really Lidl bill.
One of our roving reporters picked it off the table at the supermarket’s lavish dinner at the V&A on Wednesday night. The bill includes extravagant treats such as smoked Scottish salmon, 12-year-old malt whisky, Parma ham and chocolate but comes out at only £1,841.93 – a thrifty £9.96 per head. Do you think Lidl is trying to make a point?
