“Every food story is about the people. So, I wanted to look at this through the lens of food, but telling the incredible stories of these people.” - author Veronica Hinke talking about her approach to writing her book THE LAST NIGHT ON THE TITANIC.

It’s been 107 years since the Titanic sank, killing over 1500 passengers as the ship broke apart in the North Atlantic Ocean. Despite the time that’s passed there’s still a tremendous amount of interest in the ship and stories surrounding it’s tragic maiden voyage. A new book from Chicago area food writer, Veronica Hinke, explores the stories of the Titanic with a different lens.  THE LAST NIGHT ON THE TITANIC: UNSINKABLE DRINKING, DINING AND STYLE offers a culinary narrative of the historic incident with interesting stories about the people on board and the food that was served.
