For Christmas I got a really unique cookbook - it's called My Last Supper - have you heard of it? The concept is that famous chefs discuss how, what and with whom they would eat their last supper. It was interesting to hear not only what they would eat, but in what setting that they think is ideal.
That got me thinking about what mine would look like so I thought I'd share it with you today. I've also asked a few blogging friends to join me, so there will be more coming over the next several weeks.
Here's where I'd begin...
Al Fresco - with a stunning view - is a must...probably not this formal but you get the idea! :)
Beautiful linens would be on the table - I couldn't resist including these!
Perhaps in a setting for a quiet walk before dinner...Italian Riviera anyone?
We'd start with a light cocktail - figs in champagne sound divine...
Some lovely appetizers - served artistically...
Did I mention there would be a LOT of candlelight and other twinkly things, in addition to the beautiful stars in the cloudless night sky?
A gorgeous salad (notice the fig theme - we are in Italy afterall!)
A true luxury: I'd hire a sommelier to make sure we had a nice selection for each course.
I'd invite old friends and new - but only the true ones - and of course my loving family (including my dog!). Lots of laughs would be "on the menu".
Creative flowers must be on hand for visual enjoyment - fresh and natural since they have to compete with the view. :)
Nothing fussy for the main course - wood fired pizzas with incredible fresh, local ingredients...
Perhaps I'd hire an insanely expensive artist to perform...:)
And pavlova for dessert!
So that's my last supper - what would yours be?
