AMERICA: 1940 - Maiden Voyage "Thanksgiving & Gala Dinner" menu

Product Description

United States Lines - A special "Thanksgiving and Gala Dinner" menu dated November 28, 1946. I believe the ship was on the return leg of her first peace-time transatlantic crossing.

No mention as to class, but upscale choices included Pate de Foie Gras on Toast, Consomme Xavier, Roast Stuffed Vermont Turkey with Giblet Sauce and Cranberry Jelly, Asparagus Polonaise, and Mocha Layer Cake.

According to Lawrence Driscoll's wonderful book, "The Many Lives of a Great Ship", United States Lines recruited chef Otto Bismarck and a top-notch staff to up the level of cuisine served onboard. Unfortunately, during the return leg of AMERICA's maiden voyage, Captain Manning reported the westbound crossing as "the worst trip in years" due to high winds and rough seas. Hopefully passengers with strong stomachs were able to enjoy the festive cuisine.

Very good condition.
