Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir's Last Meal (2008)

Yo Yo Fritaille

The goggle-eyed existentialist and his proto-feminist fuck buddy will be treated to one of the highest achievements of French cooking—though one that wasn't created in France itself, but rather in one of her former colonies. The Haitian pork confit called griot is a specialty of the melodiously named Yo Yo Fritaille, the venerable producer of all things fried, where a carry-out container with $10 worth of pork chunks also contains fried taro, twice-fried plantains, and the scaldingly hot Scotch Bonnet slaw that lies upon the meat like the reassuring hand of a friend, even when all looks darkest.
