Top 10 Ways to Remember the Titanic (Slideshow)

  • 2 of 11

1. Eat a Titanic Meal

Oyster frown

Around the world, you can eat a meal like that last served before the Titanic sunk including oysters, filet mignon, poached salmon, chicken Lyonnaise, foie gras, roasted pigeon, lamb with mint sauce and Punch Romaine, a palate-cleansing ice flavored with oranges and drenched in champagne.

With the said, such dinners celebrating the last meal of those on board the Titanic are arguably in bad taste. After all, such commemorative meals are technically recalling the last meal of all of those who died. The Tampa Tribune offers what is indeed “food for thought”:

… marking the ship’s sinking by hedonistically celebrating only the extravagance that took place before the iceberg is not only bad form, it speaks ill of our respect for those caught in that night’s tragedy as well as tragedies that have yet to happen. If we’re willing to overlook mass casualties for the sake of having a party and making a buck, what else will we choose to sanitize?

I think it was preplanned.speeding up the titanic and then bumping into an iceberg by such an experienced captain?sounds like some notable and influencial people were supposed to be killed on the titanic.this was a big plan made to look like a disaster.

A terrible thing - but not as bad as the U-Boats torpedoing all the Allied shipping.in both World Wars.

Cowardly.

very sad, indeed

Actually I think that it was more than 1,500 souls who lost their lives that night/early morning. And for me knowing that those who perished also included at least 9 dogs who suffered just as greatly as those who drown in that cold, cold water.

And yes, Christine, I have to agree with you. I had no idea that Titantic's first class menu had included foie gras. I am trying to get a local restaurant {voted Restaurant of the Year} to stop serving it. Foie gras is barbaric to the poor ducks and I have no way to understand how people can eat it. Dispicable stuff............................
