Titanic: The Cookbook is a selection of the most delicious and tantalizing dishes found on the Titanic's menus. The first-class Ritz dining room was modelled on the finest French hotel dining room of the period, and the dishes from its menus are classics of fine European cuisine. In its other dining rooms, Titanic's chefs offered meals that appealed to a wide range of passengers, from eastern-European immigrants to newly-wealthy Canadians and Americans returning home from Continental tours.

Author Yvonne Hume researched coookbooks of the period to ensure that her recipes were authentic as well as delicious. Authors Elaine Elliot and Virginia Lee tested the recipes for use by the home cook, adapting them to North American ingredients and measurements. Beautiful colour photographs show how to achieve elegant but easy presentations of the dishes. Also included are suggestions for organizing an Edwardian-era dinner party, including appropriate period drinks and step-by-step instructions for elegant napkin folding.

This is a book full of ideas for great dinner parties and a window on the cuisine of another era.

"Beautifully designed and illustrated with vintage images and full-colour photographs throughout, the book offers a taste of the finer cuisine enjoyed by the luxury liner's first-class passengers as well as a glimpse into the more basic meat-and-potatoes fare served to the second-class and steerage passengers."

- Nadine Fownes The Nova Scotian

"The book presents ideas for great dinner parties as an homage to the cuisine of the era ... stunning colour photographs.."

- Judy Creighton Canadian Press

"The recipes are well-written with clear instructions, Titanic aficionados should appreciate this book, as well as others wanting to experiement with menus from another era."

- Valerie Mansour Atlantic Books Today
