Welcome back to Lamon Reviews. As you may know I am participating in the Long and Short Wednesday Weekly Challenge. This week the topic is what my last meal would be.
Well, this is a hard one for me. I consider myself a foodie and love old recipes. I follow several channels about food history and old recipes, like Jon Townsend, Babish culinary universe, Emmymade, and recently Beryl Shereshewsky on YouTube.
I love almost all types of food and food histories, so my last meal would have to be epic. Multiple courses, of course, and something I can’t have often. But not something I have never had.
Like I said, hard. If I chose my absolute favorite dishes, it would be my husband’s eggplant parmesan, and dessert would be banana pudding with walnuts and chocolate sprinkles. (I know it sounds weird, but I like it.)
I would finish with a nice cup of coffee with a little coconut creme. I think that is a nice simple last meal.
My epic last meal would be different as I would want meals I have not tried yet, maybe seafood oriented. Blackened redfish, payella, a light melon sorbet for dessert.
No, I’ve had both payella and melon sorbet, so they are out. But the blackened redfish stays. (I hear it is very yummy) Maybe a meal with shark. Once again I haven’t tried it, but I hear it taste good when cooked well.
This is a lot harder than I thought it would be. There are so many foods I haven’t tried. I don’t know if they should be my last, because what if they don’t live up to the proverbial hype. I wouldn’t want my last meal to be something I dislike. But then spend the rest of my afterlife grateful I never have to eat it again, LOL.
But the next question is who is making this last meal of mine? If it’s me, chances are I will be trying out a recipe and hopefully not destroying it. If my husband is cooking, well we have gone through that on and I’ll have his eggplant parmesan.
If someone else is cooking, like a Gordan Ramsey or other chef, I’d order something like Beluga caviar with calves kidneys in an endive reduction or other fancy words I barely understand.
But there is still the possibility, no matter how fancy that I do not like the food prepared.
Okay, nope! Scratch everything I just said. My last meal will definitely be lots of different chocolate desserts. I’ll have cakes and pies and souffles. And then happily die in a sugar coma.
What about you? What would your last meal be? Let me know in the comments below. As for me, I’m going to go make chocolate brownies right now. 🤭🤭
