Liam Neeson's poignant tribute to his wife Natasha Richardson in his 'Last Supper' - VIDEOS
The Irishman reveals he wishes his last meal could be cooked by his late wife
In a peaceful and touching interview with well-known foodie Melanie Dunea, Liam Neeson described in detail what he would want his last supper at home to be. The final touch to the mouth-watering meal, he revealed, would be for it to be cooked by Natasha Richardson, his wife who died in 2009.
Neeson was featured in “My Last Supper At Home,” a video collection featuring short films of Dunea interviewing people on what they would eat for their last meals. The video clip shows Dunea and the actor, whom she calls, “one of the finest actors of our time,” outside on a nature walk.
When first asked what he would eat, Neeson was quick to jokingly respond with, "uh, porridge," but then answered truthfully, saying "arugula, figs, blue cheese salad, a little vinaigrette dressing for a start."
As for the main course, "roast chicken, with roast potatoes, cut up, and done covered with goose fat, with petits pois and carrots," the recipe for which can be found below or here.
And the best part of any meal? Neeson reached out to his inner-American with: "And the dessert would be, good solid American apple pie with vanilla ice cream- hot apple pie!"
But the meal, Neeson admitted, would have to have been cooked by the best chef of all, Richardson. He commented that this was his favorite meal, and one that Natasha could have "cooked to perfection.”
Richardson died in 2009 after a ski accident that most thought left her only with minor injuries at first. The couple had been married for 15 years.
Although Neeson is featured on the author’s website www.mylastsupper.com, Dunea has also published two coffee-table books on the subject, '50 Great Chefs and Their Final Meals' parts I and II. The books, written and photographed by Dunea, depict the chefs and their favorite dishes. After asking each participant what they would eat for their final meal, Dunea photographed them in ways representing their food choices.
'50 Great Chefs and Their Final Meals' shows “Wylie in a come-hither pose on a bed of American cheese, Lidia Bastianich in a pasta hat, and Gary Danko with his harem — there's Anthony Bourdain posing with only a strategically placed femur, Laurent Tourondel getting jiggy at the Krispy Kreme factory, and Dan Barber with the largest hog we have ever seen photographed,” according to NY Mag's Grub Street.
