Praise from Readers

For “Titanic: The Official Cookbook: 40 Timeless Recipes for every occasion

Over the last few years I have read probably ten books on the Titanic. This is one of my favorite. A really beautiful book, great information, and a lot of wonderful pictures. All of the Titanic books have some of the same information but each one also has a lot of new facts as this book did. A lot of serious info on a very serious event but also some fun facts such as what other movie stars were considered to play the leads in the movie “Titanic.” I really enjoyed this book.


“This book is both entertaining and factual. I liked reading about the people involved plus recipes and activities available on The Titanic. The whole incident was such a disaster, but the book seemed to be truthful and was very entertaining.”
