So what would be your last meal? If it came to that :)
I have my favourite meals...Fried Fish, Cassaroles etc, but I would have to say the following would be my last meal if it came down to that.
Appitizer: Foie Gras with cranberry relish and caramalized onions
Entree: Roasted lemon chicken
String Beans with Mushrooms
Garlic Mash Potato
Dessert: Coconut Cake from Smith and Wollensky
Red Wines and Dessert Wines
So what would your meal be?
First of all, who would have an appetite? I always wondered how these people could chow down considering what was coming next.
Anyway, I think I would definitely have a lobster roll for a starter, then warm pasta of some sort, probably spaghetti with meatballs and a very good sauce. I would ask for some rotisserie chicken, buttered steamed broccoli, warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream, and a nice Bordeaux. While waiting for my last meal, I would be wondering if the cook was the same one that made my meals during the last ten years I was waiting for this big day. I doubt Bobby Flay would be making my dinner.
Once I came across a website that listed last meals for inmates scheduled for execution in Texas. A lot of them wanted Mexican food and simple, homey stuff. (some requested beer or other alcoholic stuff, but this was denied.)
I also remember that Timothy McVey requested 2 pints of mint chip ice cream.
If I was still thinking logically and could eat at that point without throwing up and had a vast appetite:
Braised Pork Belly
Seared Duck Breast with Chestnut and Cheddar Bread Pudding and a Port Cherry Glaze
Homemade Ravioli with Roasted Butternut Squash, Sage and Browned Butter with a few Pea Shoots
Roasted Garlic Smashed Potatoes with Chives and Crispy Shallots
Eton Mess with Wild Strawberries and Aceto Balsamico de Modena
Salted Caramel Tart
Burrata Cheese on Grilled Ciabatta Bread, Drizzled with Green Olive Oil, sprinkled with Fleur de Sel
I think that about would do it!
A filet with onions and red wine sauce. Mom's potato pancakes. Asparagus roasted with olive oil and garlic. Espresso mousse in a chocolate cup. I'd die happy.
