Last Bite series in the Guardian

A new series in the Guardian asks chefs what they want for their last supper.

This would make for an interesting cooking show.

  1. That's awesome. But I feel that of the four already there, only Fergus Henderson really nailed it. (Perhaps I feel that way because I'm a fan of his work.)

      Yes! I thought that I'd like to be at his farewell, smoking, drinking and swearing. And eating.
      Looking forward to this series.

        I thought exactly the same. The others seemed really timid. Where's the debauchery?

          Do you reckon Anissa ever does debauchery, PB?

          I wonder why his doctor would tell him to avoid chocolate.

            Presumably related to his Parkinson's ?

        3. Anthony Bourdain is not listed (not surprising, given that the Grauniad is a UK paper). But I saw a recent video clip where he says his last supper would be sushi. And in NY Times he says ''Maybe one piece of sushi: high-test rice, the very best Hokkaido seaweed, some San Diego uni -- in season. Prepared by Jiro Ono, of course. When facing imminent death, eating light is to be advised.''

          OTOH, the following page (with very interesting photo of Bourdain, lol) says he'd pick "Roast bone marrow with parsley and caper salad, with a few toasted slices of baguette and some good sea salt." (Btw, that last site has a bunch of chefs, many with their proposed last suppers: )

            My Last Supper was a coffee table book published a few years age. That Bourdain link is NSFW.

          2. Someone did a book called 'Last Supers' a few years back it was the same set up. Wonder it these two projects are related.
