Melanie Dunea's 'My Last Supper: The Next Course' Chronicles Chefs' Ideal Last Meals (PHOTOS)

Four years ago, photographer Melanie Dunea asked famous chefs what their last meals would be. Her book, My Last Supper, was a stunning collection of chef photographs and interviews. Dunea's follow up, My Last Supper: The Next Course has just been released, and volume two does not disappoint.

People have been chatting about last meal rights recently, but Dunea's book comes as a relief. She treats last meals as something special and treasured, which is perhaps why some of the world's famous chefs have agreed to participate in her project.
