The end of the world

If it is 6 PM on Sunday, April 26, 2009 then my automated time-elapsed post has been successful.

As you read this now, I am dining on the following menu posted below. Many thanks to the king of the underground dining community in Toronto, Charlie Burger.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, this menu is based around the chef's notion of what his last meal on earth should be. Details of the event to follow. Stay tuned.
