The Last Supper on the Titanic

The recent anniversary (14 April 1912) of the Titanic disaster has highlighted the menu for the last supper served to the first class passengers.

Take a look at the details of the ten courses that were each washed down with a special accompanying wine and followed by fresh fruits, cheeses, coffee, cigars, port and distilled spirits.

Don’t forget to reflect on the truth that if your direction and security through life is not assured then it doesn’t matter how fine the food and wine is on your table.
