So what would be your last meal on Earth? What would you choose to have for your last supper? Maybe that sounds a little macabre or sad, but in the context of this story, it's not. It's a question that provokes a lot of deep thinking about life, family, tradition and all the passion that food so often evokes.
And the question is at the heart of a new book by photographer Melanie Dunea. Back in 2007, she published "My Last Supper," which featured portraits of 50 of the world's top chefs, and revealed what they would have for their final meal on earth.
Dunea has now come out with a sequel to that book called "My Last Supper: The Next Course — 50 more great chefs and their final meals." It's a book that got us thinking: What would your last supper be? Where would you eat it? Who'd would be there?
- Melanie Dunea, author, "My Last Supper: The Next Course — 50 more great chefs and their final meals."
- Barbara Lynch, chef and restaurateur.
- Lydia Shire, chef, Scampo in the Liberty Hotel and culinary director at Towne Stove and Spirits.
