Fannie's Last Supper reveals the origins of American cooking and explores how the culinary expert Fannie Farmer sowed the seeds of the modern food revolution. The America's Test Kitchen team recreates a 12-course feast straight from the pages of Fannie Farmer's 1896 best-seller, Boston Cooking School Cookbook. A dozen food and media mavens, including Harry Smith, Renee Montagne, Jose Andres, Mark Bittman and Amy Dickinson gather at Chris Kimball's restored 1859 townhouse to judge the results. Fannie's Last Supper also reaches back into the history of cookware, cooking and the food industry to understand how Victorians shopped, cooked, ate and entertained. The documentary also details the culinary sleuthing and testing necessary to bring back to life the original Fannie Farmer recipes and cooking methods. Recipes include: homemade jellies, Mandarin cake, venison, roast geese and lobster a l'Americaine.
