What Would Your Last Meal On Earth Be?

What Would Your Last Meal On Earth Be? 
Last Meal Chefs have been playing the “my last meal” game among themselves for decades, if not centuries, but it had always been kept within the profession. Until now. In My Last Supper: The Next Course, renowned portrait photographer Melanie Dunea revisits the idea and asks 50 of the world’s famous chefs to let her in on this insider’s game and tell her what their final meals would be.

Guests:
  Melanie Dunea, Renowned portrait photographer and author of My Last Supper: The Next Course: 50 More Great Chefs and Their Final Meals: Portraits, Interviews, and Recipes.
  Barbara Lynch, chef/owner of six Boston restaurants including No. 9 Park, the Butcher Shop, and Menton
  Lydia Shire, chef/owner of Boston restaurants Towne Stove and Spirits and Scampo

Links:
  Melanie, Barbara and Lydia will be at Harvard Book Store tonight at 7pm

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
