Dining aboard the luxurious R.M.S. Titanic during the Gilded Age was a lavish affair, with first-class dinners comprising up to ten courses. Dining was a social occasion that could last several hours, including interludes for dancing or other diversions. Guests ended their dinners by sipping coffee and snacking on assorted fruits, nuts, and cheese. This particular dish was part of the first course on the last dinner on the Titanic.
