News Feed: Luncheon Aboard the Queen Mary 2

Next Friday some lucky JBF members and guests are leaving dry land and boarding the legendary Queen Mary 2—where the number of tomes in the library (about 10,000) doesn’t quite reach the number of bottles in the wine collection (11,000). The diners will be treated to an opulent lunch at the ocean liner’s restaurant, the Britannia, as it docks in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn. Over on the Atlantic’s Food Channel, Wendy Littlefield is currently reporting on her own transatlantic voyage aboard the Queen Mary 2 in a multi-part series. Her latest account includes some staggering facts about the ship’s culinary operations: the kitchen crew, which includes no fewer than 230 employees, goes through 400 pounds of veal and beef bones for stock every day.
