A chef with a passion for history as well as food, Andrew Caldwell profiles 21 historical figures, describing the circumstances of their deaths and presenting, from what is known of their culinary predilections, a menu of their last meal. The book begins with the captain of the Titanic and the ship's final dinner, but ranges across history, from Alexander the Great in antiquity to Rasputin, Hitler and Marilyn Monroe in the 20th century - with recipes adapted for modern kitchens.
