MANILA - If you were given the chance to choose the last meal you will have in your life, what would it be?
Esquire Philippines magazine posed this question to a number of prominent local personalities in its April 2014 issue.
Among those interviewed were chef Margarita Fores of Cibo, Lusso and Grace Park fame, Senator Sonny Angara, free man Hubert Webb, film director Erik Matti, model Pauline Prieto, and blogger Cecile Zamora van Straten or Chuvaness.
Here are their responses, as mentioned in Esquire Philippines:
Margarita Fores: “A Bistecca Fiorentina from Chianina beef with a good béarnaise sauce and sale di Cervia; fresh handmade Artusi style egg taglierini from organic eggs; the purest taba ng talangka from Alaminos, Pangasinan on top of buttered Milagrosa rice using Italian sea salt and butter from Normandy; a bottle of Sassicaia 1985; and a cold Sarsi.”
Hubert Webb: “Lamb, to be eaten on top of a mountain.”
Sonny Angara: “Steak, pizza, unagi sushi, ramen, a cold beer and chocolate mousse.”
Pauline Prieto: “A batch of my boyfriend’s homemade cookies. He makes them crunchy and chewy at the same time! Also, coconut shavings and chocolate chips equal perfection.”
Cecile Zamora van Straten: “Sinigang na bulalo with lots of bone marrow, rice and Coke.”
Erik Matti: “Perfect everyday mushy scrambled eggs, butter and pan de sal, truffle-crusted lechon, uni on pasta, and Paris-brest for dessert. And before my last breath, a really good cup of coffee and a long, loud and resounding burp, please.”
