Your Last Meal with Rachel Belle
About This Show
What would your last meal be? Host Rachel Belle asks every guest this question - but that’s just the beginning! Each dish’s origins, preparation, and cultural influence are among the many stones upturned as Rachel consults chefs and culinary anthropologists, fishmongers and fry cooks on her quest to explore every facet of Your Last Meal. Twice monthly. Original music by Prom Queen.

Matthew Inman's "The Oatmeal" (theoatmeal.com) is one of the most popular webcomics on the entire internet. His game "Exploding Kittens" holds the record for the most successful Kickstarter campaign of all time ($8.7m of its $10k goal!), so for his last meal we had to bring in the big guns... Have you seen "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" about 91 year-old Jiro Ono, Japan's greatest sushi chef? His apprentice Shiro Kashiba was Seattle's first sushi chef, and joins Rachel in-studio to tell us about the history of sushi, the proper way to enjoy Matthew's final dish, and why he's still working 5 nights a week at his restaurant Sushi Kashiba at Seattle's Pike's Place Market. SPOILER ALERT: It's because he's a delightful human being. If you want to participate in Matthew's Beat the Blerch race, sign up or get info at beaththeblerch.com.
