I’m sure you’ve heard that today, Saturday, May 21, 2011, will be the end of the world, the Apocolypse, the Rapture, etc. Already knowing this, I still made a grave mistake last night. I forgot to take the Torta Setteveli, an extra I had made for my auntie’s birthday party, from the freezer. It may have been my last meal on earth, and I left a delicious end-of-the-world chocolate dessert in the freezer. Oh Dio Mio!!!
I know, I know; how can I possibly call myself @foodloverkathy and not have elaborately planned my last meal? Well, last night while my Torta Setteveli was defrosting, I ate some so-so store-bought chocolate ice cream, on top of which I put some chopped chocolate and chocolate sauce (you know, just in case) and made my last meal plans. Here they are.

The wine –
Since this last meal stuff is serious business and I’m far from a wine expert, maybe Jeremy, Hande and Joel would help out with wine selections? In the meantime, my choices for part of the meal, would be a few wines I still think about: the Albanegra from Cantine Menhir and one or two Barolo wines.
Location, location, location –
It is just as important for a last meal. As long as I’m along the shores of the blue Mediterrenean, I would be happy. It could be Sicily, Puglia, Campania. Although I thought about making it an all-Southern Italy request, I couldn’t leave Liguria and my “happy place” off the list.
A long table overlooking one of these coastlines and surrounded by all the people I love, friends and family. Now that’s my idea of an earth-ending meal. Much better than left over beef borguignon and some make-shift chocolate sundae, don’t you think?
Now it’s your turn. What would your last meal be? Where would you eat it and with whom?
