Someone recently asked me what I would order for my last meal if I were on death row. This question is a lot harder to answer than it would seem. I wondered what actual people on death row ordered for their last meal. When I did an online search, I found this blog, Dead Man Eating. Very interesting! Seems like fried chicken and soda are favorites, or maybe just a reflection that a lot of people on death row are in the South.
After much thought, if I were able, I would request my mom’s fusilli served with good ricotta and Italian bread. My last request for dessert would be an original Francois Payard creation just for me.
