Last Bite series in the Guardian

  • 9

A new series in the Guardian asks chefs what they want for their last supper. http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandsty...

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?

        2. re: davis_sq_pro

          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.'' http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage...

          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." http://www.mylastsupper.com/2012/03/a... (Btw, that last site has a bunch of chefs, many with their proposed last suppers: http://www.mylastsupper.com/category/... )

            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.
