one final gift from the culinary gods
I'm not certain I'd want to choose the details of the meal. Formal dinner design is best left to people who know what they're doing. A
well-coordinated meal with proper choice of wine for each course is going to turn out far better than any arbitrarily chosen list of favorite
But in keeping with the spirit of your question, I'll give you my own answers.
Last drink of choice.
In my mind a proper meal should not be limited to only a single type of alcohol. But if I were to choose only one, I'd choose a fun drink and plan on
being so cheery during the meal that I wasn't too concerned with how well it complemented my food choices.
So...a Singapore Sling, made properly with freshly-squeezed fruit juices and enough pulp that it can be chewed, along with excessive garnishing of
fruit on the rim. And for a final touch of decadence, the whole thing will be served in a pineapple instead of a glass.
Last entree of choice.
I'm leaning towards a "mixed meat platter." It would include both my favoirtes...saltwater eel, mantra ray, turkey, etc. along with some things
I've never tried before: whale, dolphin, dog. Each meat would be available in a variety of states, from raw to cooked to crunchy charcoal. Raw food
tends to have better flavor, but texture adds a great deal to the experience of eating. I would want both.
Last (2) side items of choice.
A pretty girl on my left side, and a pretty girl on my right side. They can feed me.
Come on bro...follow the guidlines laid out.
*shrug* Ok. I'd probably choose a similarly varied cheese platter to mix with the meats, and then be prissy and choose ginger as a palate cleanser.
If this is a final meal, I don't want to be wasting my time eating fruits and vegetables just because it's traditional.
Last dessert of choice.
It's tough between a huge slab of chocolate and Japanese parfait. Therefore, clearly the answer is to have Japanese parfait with a huge slab of
chocolate as garnish. Japanese parfait is some of the yummiest stuff in the world. And, like food textured by burning, there's a visceral quality
beyond merely flavor available from gnawing from slabs of chocolate bigger than your hand.
