Last Meal: Alexandra Guarnaschelli

We asked Alexandra Guarnaschelli, the Executive Chef at Butter, to imagine her ideal last meal. She went a step further and absolutely fantasized about it. As she says, “C’mon! it’s a last meal!”

Here’s her decadent menu:

Course 1: A warm, sloppy grilled cheese sandwich appetizer made with Brie, Chaource and Cabrales Cheeses. (Yes - all 3 combined! c'mon! It's a last meal!)
Course 2: My Mother's Marinara Sauce with Perciatelli Pasta and Shaved Bottarga.
Course 3: A Fresh 30-pound Fresh Alaskan King Crab with a pound of Melted Butter.
Course 4: Sauteed Crispy Veal Cutlets with Marsala.
Course 5: 12 - Layer Dark Chocolate Cake with Fresh Whipped Cream.
Petits Fours: Mini Huckleberry Pies, Chocolate Rum Truffles, Lemon Ginger Snap Sandwiches, Deep-Fried Banana Ice Cream.
