From its creation in the remote island caves of the Philippines to its transformation into the legendary Cantonese dish of Bird’s Nest Soup at a 3 Michelin star restaurant, this rare exotic delicacy is one of the world’s most expensive foods, costing upwards of $100 in some of China’s top restaurants.
