A sample menu lists, among other things, a large number of entrees.
Question #1: Did everyone eat everything (2 kinds of soup, fish, lamb, beef, squab, et al) at same meal, or did you make a choice--1 of the soups, fish, one meat/poultry entree, etc.?
Q #2: Anyone know what Vegetable Marrow Farcie or Chartreube Jelly is/are?

No, you didn't get everything - a menu is a list of choices for each stage of the meal. But in the a la carte restaurant you could work through the whole menu if you paid enough and were hungry enough. Visions come to mind of the exploding diner scene in 'Monty Python's Meaning of Life'. Being more of a fish & chips man myself, I'll leave your other question to the experts.

Farcie = stuffed(!) - usually with a savoury rice. I'm assuming you know that vegetable marrow is a member of the squashes, related to such as aubergine or zucchini.

Chartreube? Shouldn't that be 'Chartreuse', that is, a Chartreuse-flavored jelly?

The Sample First Class Menu displayed in the "Titanica - The Artifact Exhibit" exhiibt in L.A. has it as I spelled it. You're probably right about this being an error, but I'm not a gourmet, and I wanted to check.
By the way, how do I do italics here?

Mike, the instructions for formatting (including italics) are on the help/instructions page (see link at bottom of this page).

Hi all! Were any sorts of candles and/or oil lamps used in first class dining room or anywhere else during the voyage? I have heard of some passage way lamps that I am not much aware of. Thanks!

Perhaps someone can help me with this rather obscure question. (Also, Mods, please redirect my post if it's not in the right place! There were so many threads on the topic of first class meals & food that I wasn't sure where to post.)

I swear to the highest heaven that a number of years ago I read an article in the food section of the newspaper that one of the menu items in first class was spinal cord of eels. Or perhaps it was an ingredient used in a soup or other delicacy. Since then, I have never been able to confirm that I remember correctly what I thought I read. Does anyone have knowledge of this bit of trivia?

As an alternative ... what do people think was the strangest thing that first class passengers were served?

Thanks for the help!

The chartreuse jelly is not a Chartreuse-flavored jelly; chartreuse jelly is a kkind of sweet jelly. This expression is from french - they use the word chartreuse for a sweet jelly, served as a desert. I am now in France and I asked a chef of a restaurant and he explained me some meals of Titanic, also the egg íƒÂ  l'Argenteuil or sauce mousselin and consommíƒÂ© tapioca.
