Dead Chef's Party

What with Halloween coming up so soon, I find myself thinking about those who have passed on before us quite a bit.

And so I got to thinking, what four dead historical foodies would I like to invite over for a meal and what meal would it be?

For my part, I would love to invite Julia Child, MFK Fisher, Clementine Paddleford, and Isabella Beeton for afternoon tea. Baking, after all, is my forte, and tea is all about little baked nibbles, but they can be produced in a quantity to sate the appetite as well as delight the palate. As for my guests, I love these four fabulous women who made a career out of food. All four have had some little influence on my approach to food, too. I would love to talk with them all.

So who would you invite, and what meal would you serve?
