The Food of Awakening is written by S. Dhammika. This book is about a great deal of discussion has been given to the last meal the Buddha ate before he passed into final Nirvana. The Mahaparinibbana Sutta specifically records that the blacksmith Cunda offered the Buddha a dish called sukaramaddava and that this was the last thing the Buddha ever ate.

The compound sukaramaddava can be translated as boar’s softness or boar’s mildness and it has been translated as ‘tender pork’. However, the meaning of the term is by no means clear.
