"If you were going to die tomorrow, what would you want for your last meal on earth? An insider's pastime that is probably as old and as widespread as the professional kitchen itself, the "My Last Supper" game is a favorite among chefs. Acclaimed photographer Melanie Dunea took the game further by adding question of preparation, location, and dinning companions. Showcasing fifty of the world's greatest chefs. My Last Supper is the stunning, revealing, and often surprising result. Dunea ingeniously finds a way into the harried, hidden minds of the people who have turned preparing food into art." "Accompanied by photographs, each interview reveals the heart and soul of our favorite chefs. Recipes of each chef's chosen dish allow you to try them for yourself, from Ferran Adria's cod foam with honey-flavored baby onions to Gabrielle Hamilton's soft scrambled eggs; from Eric Ripert's truffled country bread to Laurent Tourondel's tuna BLT sandwich. Where would Alain Ducasse's last supper take place? Who would prepare Anthony Bourdain's final meal? As the clock ticked, what album would Gordon Ramsay be listening to? And who would just want to be with Mom? It is impossible to open My Last Supper without feeling connected to the importance of how and with what we nourish ourselves, the significance of those with whom we break bread, and what it all says about who we are."--BOOK JACKET.Dunea, Melanie is the author of 'My Last Supper 50 Great Chefs and Their Final Meals / Portraits, Interviews, and Recipes', published 2007 under ISBN 9781596912878 and ISBN 1596912871.
