My sister's kids are studying the Titanic and she wants to fix them the 'final' dinner. Does anyone have that info, or can you direct me to where I could find it. I have been searching so far and have found nothing. Thanks

"Last Dinner on the Titanic -- Menus and Recipes from the Great Liner," by Rick Archbold and Dana McCauley (with a foreward by Walter Lord) should still be available in most bookstores. Look in the transportation section.
If that doesn't work, try Amazon.com
If that still doesn't work, let me know.

Filets Mignons Lili
Sauté of Chicken, Lyonnaise
Vegatable Marrow Farcie

Lamb, Mint Sauce
Roast Duckling, Apple Sauce
Sirloin of Beef, Chateau Potatoes

Green Peas or Creamed Carrots
Boiled Rice
Parmentier & Boiled New Potatoes

Punch Romaine

Roast Squab & Cresson
Cold Asparagus Vinaigrette
Pí¢té De Foie Gras
Celery

Waldorf Pudding
Peaches in Chartreuse Jelly
Chocolate & Vanilla Eclairs

As Mike said, “Last Dinner on the Titanic” is a wonderful book with menus, receipes and full color images. I definatly recommend it. Sincerely,

I have found the info on this website very useful and very interesting. In school we have a project due on the Titanic and I choose to write a report as a passenger aboard the ship.The info helped me use realistic events,ideas,places,and even foods.I recommend this website to anyone who is a fan of the Titanic or doing a report on it.You could find some very cool info.

Could anyone be so kind to share the menu of the 3rd class passengers? I am interested in the final dinner, but if possible, also the menu for the previous days.
Additionally, I was wondering how the 3rd class dining hall worked, was it cafeteria style, where everybody lined up to get their food at a counter, or was it served at the table?
Best,
Mette McCall

Hi Mette,

Page 116 of Titanic: Triumph and Tragedy by Eaton and Hass contains a: Specimen Third Class Bill of Fare. - The Menu was a weekly one. - Breakfast, Dinner, Tea and Supper.
Sunday Tea being listed as nearly as I can read it as: Ragout of Beef, Potatoes and Pickles; Apricots; Fresh Bread and Butter; Currant Buns; and Tea.
Supper - Every Day: Cabin Biscuits and Cheese. - Gruel and Coffee.

Hallo, Mette.

I have seen an 'artist's impression', presumably part of a White Star promo, of the Third Class dining room in which a smartly-dressed waiter can be seen moving between the tables. Idealised, of course, but probably that's the way it was.

(See "Titanic: An Illustrated History")

Joel, you can find the complete Third Class 'Bill of Fare' (breakfast, dinner and tea) for all 7 days of the week in the book mentioned above by Lester Mitcham. The same book also has a number of sample menus from Second Class, and details of the type and amounts of food carried on the ship. If your local library doesn't have this title, you can find similar information in many other books about the Titanic.

Hello, Rena---

On a page like that, it might not be a bad idea to provide a link to the specific item you're referring to, rather than just the page itself. The menu is quite far down the page and the link to it is somewhat obscure. It would be much easier for others to find what you were referring to if you provided a link to http://www.squidoo.com/Harland-and-Wolffs-Titanic/#module3913731, which takes you directly to the copy of the menu.

There are some clear factual errors on the page you linked to---Titanic was not, for example, the first liner with a pool---and some other mistakes which may just be typos---it's Lord "Pirrie," not "Perry," who headed H&W. I would be cautious about relying on what's on that page without checking it first.
