Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
According to Walter Lord (A Night To Remember, LJ 10/15/55), April 14 finds many "sentimentalists" re-creating the Titanic's last meals. Now, with the help of research chef McCauley, Archbold (coauthor of The Discovery of the Titanic, LJ 1/88) reveals these menus to the population at large. A handsome gift book filled with photos, graphics, and Edwardian motifs, this work will appeal to foodies, Titanic buffs, and trend seekers. The recipes, taken from all five dining room menus, include delicacies like Quail Eggs and Caviar, Lobster Thermidor, and Oysters la Russe; even the steerage "saloon" fare is formidable by present standards. There's also advice on how to host a Titanic dinner party complete with wardrobe and table-setting ideas, helping diners to feel like an Astor at the captain's table. With renewed interest and marketing of things Titanic in anticipation of the much-publicized film and Broadway musical (this year marks the 85th anniversary of the disaster), this book is surely the tip of the iceberg.David Nudo, "Library Journal"

    At 9 o'clock you are eating the fish.....

    This book is FANTASTIC. I've been interested in TITANIC since before Leo DeCaprio was born, and this is undoubtedly one of the best books I have ever seen on the subject. The photos alone are worth it to the hardcore TITANIC fan. What makes it really work though is the cooking. Not only does the food give you literal taste of the life and times of those on TITANIC, it also give you a very real and physical understanding of the class distinctions of Edwardian society. The third class fare is simple but quite good; but it pales in comparision to the 14 course dinners routinely served in first class. Be warned, the cooking here can be pretty involved. Don't get me wrong, there are some dishes that novice chefs can easily handle, but much of the first class fare is seriously involved. Don't even think of trying the 14 course first class meal without some serious prep work and planning. The book has a great section on how to try it, what you can make the day before and a schedule when and what order to cook the dishes in, but it is still a daunting undertaking; one that makes the average American Thanksgiving dinner pale in compairison. If you think you are up to the challenge though, the book has complete info on how to stage a Titanic dinner party. Menu suggestions, costume suggestions, references to period music CD's, etc.
