last suppers

If you were to die after dinner, what would you eat?

Da Vinci's last meal was crème brûlée.

Explorer Kit Carson's last words were "I sure wish I had time for one last bowl of chili."

Oscar Wilde, the man who said: "Either the wallpaper goes or I do." Had champagne for his last meal.

Elvis Presley had four scoops of ice cream and six chocolate chip cookies.

If I could choose my last meal, I would have a macaroni and cheese casserole, meatloaf with ketchup, chicken wings and Oreo cheesecake for dessert.

These aren't my favourite foods, but they're all comfort foods that I associate with good memories.

From the finest gourmet cuisine to the simplest home cooking, we can all think of a few last things we'd like to tempt our palates with.

What would your last supper be?

Interesting your comfort foods, Gill. I can remember preparing some of them. I used to make macaroni and cheese from scratch though you kids would have preferred Kraft dinner. (Glad that isn't on your list.) If I had to order a last dinner, it would be steak in green pepper sauce with frites, red wine from the Gaillac region, and creme brulee.)

Now this is a subject that can bring me out of lurkdom.

Since desserts are going to kill me anyway, may as well make it a huge bowl of decadent Isle Flotant.

Any chance we can pry a recipe for this chocolate-banana bread from your roommate? It sounds delicious.

Hmm, maybe a platter of oysters. The taste of the sea would leave me smiling...

i would begin with a couple of frozen strawberry margaritas. then i would eat my own meatloaf (with its icing of tomato paste, diced onion, diced peppers, and brown sugar), some garlic mashed potatoes with cracked pepper and course salt, and baigan bartha with kabuli nan. i would end with a slice of key lime cheesecake. i would have a mango lassi and iced tea with orange and lemon slices during the meal. ok, i am ready to eat!

these are not my absolute favorites either, but they are foods i love and would want to taste again...so many wonderful tastes to choose from - but at the moment these are the ones i am hungry for, i suppose. yummmmm.

cheese from bourgogne called "l'ami du chambertin", red pommard wine, and dessert would be "fondant au chocolat".

this would be great!

Cheers

Not a doubt in my mind: a great big turkey dinner, complete with both mashed and sweet potatoes, stuffing, broccoli, and carrots. The meal I associate with Thanksgiving and Christmas and happy family moments, and that great so-full-you-could-explode feeling. And creme brulee for dessert.

My last meal would actually be a traditional Punjabi/Indian breakfast. Warm potato and spice stuffed paranthas (rotis) with a mound of butter and a cup of hot, perfectly spiced, sugary, milky cup of chai. For dessert, I would eat lemon basil truffels from Chocolate Arts in Vancouver along with a perfectly ripe mango. My drink would be a really well made martini.
These are not really my favourite foods but these are foods that I associate with my roots, my childhood and most especially with my fond memories of travelling through villages in India-where the art of sharing a simple meal with friends and strangers is truly a beautiful experience. Minus the martinis ofcourse-that is a whole different set of memories.

I'm conflicted. Either: a marble cheese sandwich on untoasted spongy white wonderbread and a big slab of chocolate cake, or salmon sashimi with sweet potato and shrimp tempura, or a big bowl of my mom's pho with rare beef, or my mom's chicken, steamed fish and a bowl of rice, or a big plate of pancakes and syrup with a thick chocolate milkshake from frans! OR ALL OF THE ABOVE! that was a fun blog-reply. i enjoy thinking about food. off to get some now!
