Waterstones Says

Mind sharpened by intimations of mortality, food writer Jay Rayner sets out his gastronomic life in eight memorable dishes. From Louisiana to Tokyo, My Last Supper charts an existence dominated by cuisine in deliciously witty and flavoursome prose.

You're about to die. What would your final meal be? This question has long troubled Jay Rayner.

As a man more obsessed with his lunch than is strictly necessary, the idea of a showpiece last supper is a tantalising prospect. But wouldn't knowledge of your imminent demise ruin your appetite? So, Jay decided to cheat death. The plan was simple: he would embark on a journey through his life in food in pursuit of the meal to end all meals. It's a quest that takes him from necking oysters on the Louisiana shoreline to forking away the finest French pastries in Tokyo, and from his earliest memories of snails in garlic butter, through multiple pig-based banquets, to the unforgettable final meal itself.

My Last Supper is both a hugely entertaining account of a life built around mealtimes and a fascinating global exploration of our relationship with what we eat. It is the story of one hungry man, in eight courses.

“An Engaging Read”

Jay's anecdotal style of writing is really engaging, I found myself reading a hundred pages without realising it. He intersperses recipes throughout the chapters and this really brings the book together,... More
