My son did some work on this some years ago. This was the first class menu, there were other menus for the other classes, not quite as exquisite.

That was an interesting read! Thanks for the link. Wonder how long it takes to eat a 10-course meal. That's something I've never done! I've always been fascinated by the Titanic story, so this adds to it.

My sister and her husband live in Southern Oregon, and make a yearly trip to The French Laundry, which is in Northern California. While this would not be to my taste (and I could NEVER bring myself to spend $240 for just one meal), it is a 7-10 course meal and takes about 4 hours to consume.

Thanks for posting this, GG. It's kinda comforting to think that the passengers (some of them at least) had such a wonderful meal their last night on earth.

I'm trying to debate whether or not to mention this to my MIL. She's obsessed with the RMS Titanic. She firmly believes that she was a passenger on that ship in a former life, probably a little girl, and did not survive the voyage.

AllenOK - If she remembers eating it you can confirm she traveled 1st Class

Already knew a bit about it but just read a piece about The French Laundry. Given being able to have the time and bucks, I would definitely love to experience a meal there.

Slow and easy....................
