Last year, Lifelounge's Em-T discussed the abolition of last meal requests by death row inmates in Texas. For some reason last meals are an endlessly fascinating, if not morbid, topic. How do people choose? Do they go for old favourites, or delicacies they could never afford before? Would you even have an appetite at that stage?

Chef and artist Julia Ziegler-Haynes is similarly obsessed with this tradition, painstakingly recreating last meal requests she has found in public records. Choosing 24 meals and documenting them in her book Today's Special, Ziegler-Haynes has made sure the meals are meticulously emulated down to the last detail; whether it be a bunch of tacos and pizzas or a single cup of coffee.
