The Titanic – It’s the story that continues to fascinate the world. April 14 marks the anniversary when “the large luxurious ship carrying many of the wealthiest people on the globe met its doom. “The story of the Titanic isn’t just about the mysterious circumstances of the sinking, or the tragedy and loss of life. Much of our fascination with Titanic is in the details. It’s a look back at how the Edwardian-era passengers lived, dressed and of course, how they ate.” This multi-course feast, with champagne and wine, will allow you to take a journey back in time to an Edwardian world of strict class distinctions, obsession with etiquette and fashion and the era’s love of fine food. This is a demonstration class. and is $100 per person.
