Ardovino’s Desert Crossing to Host Recreation of Last Meal on the Titanic
With the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic fast approaching, interest is building all over the world for this tragic milestone. In our area, Ardovino’s Desert Crossing in Sunland Park, New Mexico, will commemorate the occasion by hosting a dinner event that centers around the doomed diners last meal.
This Friday, April 13, Ardovino's Desert Crossing will recreate the 10-course meal served to first class passengers aboard the ill-fated Titanic on April 14, 1912 -- just hours before the "unsinkable" luxury liner sank to the bottom of the North Atlantic. The menu, consisting of Oysters a la Russe, Filet Mignon Lili and Lamb with Mint Sauce among quite a few other courses, are original recipes taken from the book "Last Dinner on the Titanic", according to owner Marina Ardovino. "We are also doing wine pairings for each course with French wines typical to that era," Marina adds.
Live music by El Paso Pro Musica featuring standards of the era, and replicas of the full dinner service,
including flat ware and plate ware, and crew uniforms from the set of the "Titanic" movie will be on display adding to the ambiance of the evening. Sounds like the only thing missing is you shouting "I'm the king of the world!"
The cost for the event is $150 plus tax and service. Call 575-589-0653 ext. 3 for more information.
