My Last Supper : The World's Greatest Chefs and Their Final Feasts
In this brilliantly realised book, Melanie Dunea, award-winning photographer and contributor to "Time", "People" and "Newsweek", convinces fifty of the world's most famous chefs to reveal their last supper fantasies, asking them who would prepare it, where it would take place, who would be invited, whether there would be music, and, most importantly, what the dishes would be. Their answers reveal the passions and personalities of the most respected names in the business.Accompanying the interviews there are Vanity Fair-style portraits that beautifully capture their intimate responses, and at the back of the book there are mouth-watering recipes from each of the chefs. As well as being a full-colour visual feast, "My Last Supper" is a veritable Who's Who of the cooking world: Anthony Bourdain, Fergus Henderson, Tom Aikens, Raymond Blanc, Amit Chowdhury, Giorgio Locatelli, Nobu, Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay and Tetsuya are among the many contributors. This is the perfect book for any foodie, chef-obsessed fan or lover of cutting-edge photography.

'Chefs have been playing the "Last Meal Game" amongst themselves for decades - if not centuries. Like "The Aristocrats" joke, it's - until now - been largely kept within the profession. Melanie Dunea has come up with a damn good idea. And she has the reach, the means, and the talent to execute it' Anthoy Bourdain
