Food Porn

A collection of 50 Great Chefs and their Final Meals / Portraits, Interviews, and Recipes.

What an intriguing book...not quite a recipe book, and certainly not a coffee table book. It's a book in a class of it's own. As a self-professed gourmet, this book provides a glance into the lives and desires of some of the biggest and most influential names in the modern American culinary scene. The pictures ....well what can I say, it's pure pornography. I Love it! Anthony Bourdain poses totally nude, strategically wielding a butchered leg bone. But perhaps no picture is more memorable than Dan Barber's, posing alongside a massive boar named Boris. His last meal is rack of boar, of course: "If I'm going, so is Boris." So you get the idea what this book is about.

"My Last Supper" is a beautiful book with substance and sustenance (though not provided, that's up to you)! All I wanted to do after reading this book was to eat, drink, and be merry! Every foodie should own a copy.
