From the blog Almost Bourdain:

An excerpt from the book "My Last Supper" by Melanie Dunea. She wrote to 50 great chefs and asked them to describe their ideal last meal:

- Thomas Keller -

Who would prepare the meal? I would like all the chefs from the French Laundry and Bouchon to prepare my final meal.

What would be your last meal on earth? I would begin with a half kilo of osetra caviar, followed by some otoro. I would then have a quesadilla, followed by a roast chicken, and finally, brie with truffles. For dessert I would choose to have either profiteroles or a lemon tart.

What would be the setting for the meal? I would want to eat my last meal at home in Yountville, California, and in New York City.

What would you drink with your meal? I would start out with a 1983 Salon champagne, followed by a Ridge Lytton Springs zinfandel. I would end with a twenty-five-year-old Macallan scotch.

Would there be music? I would listen to the compilation of music that is played at Ad Hoc, our restaurant in Napa Valley.

Who would be your dining companions? Lauran Cunningham, my brothers, my sister, and my father.

And you, readers, what would your last meal be and where and with whom would you eat it?
