I bought this second hand book, last dinner on the titanic menus & recipes from the great liner for my husband's birthday, as he has a fascination with the Titanic & loves to cook. It was a good price & turned up in reasonable time & was in excellent condition for a second hand book. My husband loves it. I would buy from this seller again.

While the people were feasting, the crew was totally incompetent.
The Third Class (Steerage) passengers were locked below and had guns trained on them as they tried to escape.
the meal looks superb except for the squab.
It is interesting to go to a Titanic exhibition and see the dishes and other items that were recovered from the ship.

My daughter and I used this book to create a Titanic themed Thanksgiving this year and it was amazing. We made the quail eggs in aspic, salmon with Mousseline sauce, rosewater palate cleanser, roast turkey with stuffing, turnip purée, braised cabbage and the roasted potatoes. For dessert we did the orange surprise and the coconut sandwich cookies. While it was a LOT of work to make consommé and court bouillon, it sure was a hit with our family!

A wonderful read. The narrative that accompanies these recipes delightfully takes you back to the Edwardian era of overindulgence. The photographs of artifacts and the concise information on some of the passengers reminds you of the tragic losses that took place on that cold April night.

This is one of the best books I have ever bought! As a long time fan of the TITANIC and an amateur cook I could not resist this book; despite the tragic fact that the LAST DINNER ON THE TITANIC was literally the LAST meal of over 1,500 men women, and children.
Despite that chilling touch, this is a wonderful book, and the food is fantastic! The book is lavishly illustrated, and I was a bit reluctant to take such a lovely book into the kitchen and risk a spill, although I'm very glad I did! The binding is such that it lies flat on my counter, and the pages don't turn themselves or snap shut 1/2 way through a recipie, (This is a VERY important feature in a cookbook!). Its type is a bit smaller than I like in a cookbook, but is still large and clear enough that I can read the recipies while cooking.
The recipies themselves are some of the easiest to follow and most clearly written I have encountered. I really enjoyed cooking the Chicken Lyonnaise and the Lamb with Mint Sauce; and they came out sucessfuly the first time too! (If you knew my cooking ability that is quite a tribute to the recipie!) Most of the dishes also seem to be relatively "idiot proof" (perhaps because the White Star Chefs had to turn out several hundred servings of each during the course of the evening??) though there is plenty to challenge the more experienced chef's as well, such as Lobster Thermidor, and Minted Green Pea Timbales. I have been very happy with everything I have cooked from the book so far.
Menus for Third, Second, and First Class (as well as the First Class Ala Carte Resturant) are all included, as are tips for hosting a TITANIC themed dinner party.

On the third class menu, there is a dessert called "Coconut Sandwich". The authors admit that they do not know what this is but go ahead and guess that it is some kind of sandwich cookie. Actually, it is quite well known that in England, a sandwich cake is what we call a layer cake. There is a recipe in Mrs Bridges Cookbook (Upstairs, downstairs) called Victoria Sponge Sandwich which is definitely a layer cake. I have often seen this term used and am surprised that the authors were not able to find it. Otherwise I loved the book

We got this book from the library when Titanic items were the rage and easy to get to. I've always been interested in the ship. This was a fascinating book. Trying to pronounce some of the elaborate first-class items on the menu was fun.
There are plenty of photographs and nice illustrations in this book. It's a joy to look at, and the third-class soup spoons were huge. Personally I thought the saltine and veggie soup diet of the third class looked the most appetising. : )
You should get this book if you like Titanic, giving parties, exotic cookbooks, or just something different for fun.

What a wonderful book. You get a glimpse of the 3 dining rooms, and with the menus and recipies, it really puts you there. It makes an interesting coffee table book....no one can resist!
