Did anyone listen to the clip? Part of the thing that interested me about the story was how does anyone devise a dish like this and how does it become something to literally die for? Especially as the reporter described eating it it as a mixture of sublime pleasure and disgust. Another part was how can a person who is responsible for making laws, flagrently break the law of his nation as a final gesture? And then there's the bit about taking the decision it would be the last meal he would eat and neither eat nor drink anything further till he died, refusing any further medical help. If you knew that death is imminent, is there a meal you'd choose to be your very last?
