What Was Eaten Before the Titanic Sunk?

On April 14, 1912 the Titanic struck an iceberg and sunk. We're all familiar with the details of the ship's sinking thanks to James Cameron's blockbuster film, but do you know anything about the food that was served on the grand ocean liner? I've put together a quiz to commemorate the date and the questions are all about the food that was eaten before its demise. To learn more about it, take the quiz now!

The only thing I got right was the question about the fruit in the fruit baskets. And I only know that because grapes were the most expensive fruit in England during the Victorian era, so any ship sailing from England that wanted to impress its wealthier set would have to give them the most expensive fruit -- grapes!
