When the Titanic began sinking in icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean more than a century ago, a baker did what he could to help those around him - giving out bread and throwing chairs into the sea for people to hold on to.
British Kiwi celebrity chef Gareth Stewart, the great-great-great nephew of Titanic's chief baker Charles Joughin, will help host a special tribute lunch in Auckland marking the 102nd anniversary of the liner's sinking this week.
Stewart, the executive chef for the Nourish Group of restaurants, will recreate the official lunch menu - but with a modern twist - served on the ship on April 14, 1912, the day it hit an iceberg late that night.
The menu, served to those in first class, shows a range of food including grilled mutton chops, corned beef, mashed, fried and baked jacket potatoes, custard pudding and apple meringue. Cheeses offered included gorgonzola, cheshire, stilton, camembert and roquefort.
