My Last Supper

Posted by Austios on February 12, 2009

Inspired by last night’s Top Chef, this post is what I would want as my last supper if I were to die tomorrow. Of course there are many many foods I would love to have, but if I had to pick and choose, this is one of the few I would narrow it down to.

I would start with just a simple salad (but not the “airplane food” Fabio served), but a lightly dressed green salad with seasonal berries and candied nuts. Or a caesar salad. For an appetizer, I would want Cut’s maple glazed pork belly, which is cooked confit style in duck fat for 3 days. That was a PHENOMENAL dish.

Personally, and of course I would have a lot of other options, I would want surf and turf for an entree. I would want a perfectly cooked, well seasoned steak (12 oz Japanese Wagyu rib eye) with a truffle demi-glace and a perfect butter poached lobster tail. On the side would be a heaping mound of smooth and creamy roasted garlic mashed potatoes. That’s it.

And then for dessert, I would want bread pudding, not with raisins, but with chocolate chips and walnuts, made with brioche or croissants. The top would be crispy, but the inside would be soft and delicate. Served alongside vanilla bean ice cream and creme anglaise.
