Harvard Book Store is thrilled to welcome photographer and author MELANIE DUNEA and chefs BARBARA LYNCH and LYDIA SHIRE for a discussion of Dunea's new book, My Last Supper: The Next Course: 50 More Great Chefs and Their Final Meals: Portraits, Interviews, and Recipes.
In her first book, My Last Supper, Melanie Dunea transformed a pastime that has animated restaurants after hours for decades into a sumptuous photographic journey that provided a glimpse into the rarified world of top chefs. The book garnered national media and critical acclaim for the chic and beautiful package and the totally unique concept.
In My Last Supper: The Next Course, Dunea expands her circle from the highest echelons of chefs to include the best-loved food personalities such as Emeril Lagasse, Joel Robuchon, Tom Colicchio, Bobby Flay, and Boston's own Barbara Lynch to ask them the question that drove the first volume: "What would you eat for your last meal on earth?"
A perfect gift for anyone who loves food, beautifully produced with gorgeous photography, My Last Supper: The Next Course is so much more than a coffee table book—it’s a fascinating glimpse into the world of people who eat, breathe, and sleep food. As the number of people who consider themselves foodies has exploded, this book is sure to capture the audience who loved the first one and captivate those who are new to the scene.
