5.0 out of 5 stars At 9PM you're eating the fish... 28 Feb 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
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.

This book was given to me as joke because I am so fascinated with the Titanic. We soon discovered that this book was more than just a recipe book. It is history book combined with a recipe book. The book is so good that I keep reading it over and over again. What impressed me the most was that the movie Titanic referred to a lamb with mint sauce dinner and that is actually in the book! I was amazed. I totally recommend this book for anyone who is an avid cook and is fascinated with the RMS Titanic!

5.0 out of 5 stars TRAVEL BACK IN TIME FOR DINNER ON THE TITANIC 27 Jun 2010
By Eleni TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This is more than a cookbook, it is a time traveler's tool, a way to recreate the last diner onboard the Titanic. Even though it is a bit morbid considering that for most passengers this was the last diner of their lives, it is a fascinating read.

The recipes are divided into three sections, that of the first, second and third class menus, and are very detailed and easy to cook. It includes classic dishes like the Lamp with Mint Sauce and the Filets Mignons Lili but also rare recipes which were served on the Titanic. There are also detailed information on how the foods were cooked then and what could make them more up to date as well as what is unavailable or difficult to find now and what substitutes we can use.

Apart from the recipes section of the book, it contains every possible information about the last diner of the Titanic and everything anyone could possibly need to know in order to recreate this diner. There is information on table settings, manners, clothing, music, even facts about the passengers dining on each table. Also a very well organized plan to help you prepare the menu, and that is a significant help considering that the first class menu alone consists of eleven courses.

Delicious recipes, fascinating information about the ship and the diner customs of the time, beautiful illustrations, in total a very well researched and wonderfully written book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Dinner Party Ever 10 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book again recently, especially with 2012 coming up soon, I'm sure there will be a great interest in it. Back in 1998, I was given the book by a friend who had done the dinner party whilst living in Turkey. I put on my party in Oxford and duly passed it to a friend in Yemen. She then did her dinner party there!
Although it was many years ago now, I still remember with fond memories the wonderful evening 12 friends enjoyed dressing up and then getting through 12 (very, very small) courses. We honed the first class menu right down and kept the carbs low so that we could get through plenty. For example, the first course we just had one oyster each.
Different friends went into the kitchen to prepare different courses so that the burden of the cost was spread quite well. The guys all wore dinner suits and brought along pipes, so after eating they went 'out on deck' to smoke. At 11.40pm we all shook the table. As the evening finished one guest played the piano and sang 'Nearer My God to Thee'.
It was a truly fantastic party, and the last thing we would have wanted would be to end up in icy water. It really helped us identify with the passengers. This book is a great read and although I wouldn't go the whole hog again, I would recommend that anyone else who reads it gets inspired for a once-in-a-lifetime dinner party to put on. The thought of being able to do it around April 2012 should be quite a driver for this.
