April 14th is approaching fast for those planning to host or attend a Titanic tribute dinner. While Titanoraks (Titanic fans) pay homage annually, this year is special as it marks the 100th anniversary of the famous sinking of the unsinkable passenger liner off the Canadian coast. Tribute dinners are based on the printed menus for 1st, 2nd and 3rd class (steerage), which survived the disaster. The luxury liner boasted an impressive pantry which fed both passengers and crew: 60 tons of meat and fish products; 50 tons of fruits and vegetables; 5 tons of cereals and 40,000 eggs.
There will likely be no shortage of restaurants around the world hosting a dinner inspired by these menus. How about attending an event in Halifax, Hong Kong, or in Houston where a restaurant is offering a lovely meal for $12,000?
