Remembering the Titanic & A BOOK GIVEAWAY!!

As you may know, today is the 100th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the Titanic.

I’m not sure if it’s the glamour or the mystique that shrouds this ship’s only voyage, but I have long been fascinated with it! I am particularly drawn to the elegant dining rooms and, of course, the china!

Royal Crown Derby has the perfect pattern to commemorate this occasion; it’s called “Titanic.” This pattern was based on the original china that was used in the formal dining rooms of the ship. Isn’t it beautiful?!?

A few weeks back I shared a guest post about the last dinner on the Titanic with SavorNC readers. The “Titanic” pattern pairs so beautifully with timeless crystal and silver pieces. Take a look to see how I would pull this all together for a celebration and what I might serve.

In that post, I also gave away a free copy of Last Dinner on the Titanic. Today, I am giving away one more of these fabulous books. To win, simply like my Facebook page and leave a comment here telling me what you might serve your guests on this gorgeous “Titanic” plate. It could be anything from a delicious dessert to a filet mignon!

I’ll select a winner on Wednesday, April 18 and mail you a copy of this much-treasured book.

Good luck!

    Exquisite plate pattern. I’d serve grilled lamb chops with charred-corn-and-blue-cheese grits. Looks like a wonderful book! (I liked your Facebook page.)

  2. Have already liked you on Facebook! Would love this book to add to my collection.
    I would serve beef tenderloins, sautéed green beans, and potatoes in heavy cream and parley.
    Happy Saturday.

  3. I would have a herb infused cornish hen, rice pilaf, and roasted asparagus wrapped in bacon on the “Titanic” plate.

    What a beautiful plate! I would like to see a salad of emerald greens, roasted asparagus and finely diced red onion. The dressing would be light, a little olive oil and a spritz of lemon, a little salt and pepper. The colors would contrast beautifully with the gold and white and pick up the green on the plate.

    This china makes a beautiful table setting. I would serve any number of great dishes for a sit-down dinner, but currently on my mind is a dinner party for my daughter’s engagement. I will probably serve one of her new favorite dishes, corn beef brisket with all the trimmings.

    I like you on Facebook 🙂 This plate is much too beautiful for anything except a very exquisite dessert. It’s amazing that Titanic’s story still holds our attention 100 years later. Thanks for the very special giveaway!!
