Description

In the wee hours of the morning on April 15, 1912, the great steamship RMS Titanic met its tragic fate. At 11:30pm on April 14, the state-of-the-art cruise ship that was on its maiden voyage across the Atlantic hit an iceberg, resulting in a 300-foot-wide rip below the waterline. The damage was great and caused the ship to plunge two miles down to the ocean floor. But without knowledge of the tragic events to come, on the evening of April 14th, the first-class passengers enjoyed what would be their final meal on the ship. And it was certainly an extravagant and decadent meal covering 10 courses.

We will start with consommé Olga, roast squab and cress, sirloin of beef with chateau potatoes and finish with Waldorf pudding. Chablis, Cotes du Rhône, Bourgogne rouge and Sherry will be served.

This class meets on the main level in the Education Wing.

MATERIALS

CHEF JOSEPH CIZYNSKI
Born in New York, Joseph Cizynski almost immediately started gaining kitchen experience thanks to his mother and Aunt Dorothy who shared their passion and knowledge of food with him. Joseph attended Fairfield University where he played baseball and for two summers played in the Cape League, thus beginning his love for Cape Cod. Upon graduation from college, and a ball related injury, Joseph took to the Culinary Institute of America where at the age of 26, became Chef/Owner of Café du Bec Fin located in Old Greenwich, CT. Joseph immediately transformed it into a French Seafood restaurant and received three-3 Star reviews from the New York Times and was the first Connecticut restaurateur to receive the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for ten consecutive years. Café du Bec Fin was the venue for numerous wine tasting dinners including the members of the Mondavi, Krug and Dujac families. Several years ago, Joseph, opened a boutique wine shop located in Westchester County and has shared his knowledge of wine and food pairings hosting numerous wine tastings, dinners and various other events. Joseph and his wife, Betsy, bought a home in Chatham ten years ago and are now making plans to live there year-round. He looks forward to sharing his experiences, food and wines with you!
