Speaking of the culinary world, I recently picked up My Last Supper by Melanie Dunea. In the book, 50 famous chefs are asked to describe their ideal last meal. Their responses range from the surprisingly ordinary to the truly extravagant. Apparently, this game of relating one’s preferred last meal has been commonly played among chefs around the world for decades.
Though I’m not a famous chef (one can dream, right?), I decided to play the game. So here is my idea of the perfect last meal.
What would be your last meal on earth?
My final meal would consist of perfect comfort food. Soft Havarti cheese, crusty bread with olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette, my mom’s lasagna, bread pudding topped with whiskey sauce and a side of vanilla ice cream, and fresh raspberries.
What would be the setting for the meal?
Makena Beach on Maui. During sunset.
What would you drink with your meal?
Old Vine Zinfandel and port.
Would there be music?
Who would be your dining companions?
My husband and family, and a handful of close friends.
Who would prepare the meal?
And you, readers? Describe your perfect last meal.
