For the passengers who sailed from New York en route to the spot where the Titanic sank, a historical meal was worked into the journey.
TC chatted last week with Frederic Camonin, executive chef of the Azamara Journey. That’s the charter ship for the Titanic Memorial Cruise, which, along with another vessel that departed from the U.K., commemorated the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the storied liner.
Camonin, who was holding a copy of “Last Dinner on the Titanic,” said the Journey’s food and beverage staff was preparing to re-
create some of the dishes served to Titanic passengers, using traditional cooking and presentation methods. It took the chef about two weeks to come up with the menu (he did not, however, rely on old-fashioned technology to do his research; he also used Google).
Rest assured, the meal was more Kate Winslet than Leo DiCaprio: Azamara’s chefs were preparing dishes served only to the Titanic’s first-class passengers.
