The Hangman’s Supper

Adam Liaw in conversation with Joanna Savill

When Roald Dahl was 73, he wrote his friend Francis Bacon and asked what would he want for his last meal? Bacon’s response: “Two lightly boiled very fresh eggs and some bread and butter”.

Adam Liaw has carte blanche to devise his own ‘Hangman’s Supper’ and converse - between mouthfuls - with Joanna Savill about the inspiration behind this specially curated Last Supper.
