The Austrian and I had a lovely time on board the RMS Queen Mary for a foodie fiction event featuring a novel by Patricia V. Davis and a recipe I created called Shrimp Rohini that was inspired by Patricia’s novel. Todd Henderson, Executive Chef of the RMS Queen Mary, created my recipe for the crowd along with another recipe from sailing days of the Queen Mary. I enjoyed meeting so many amazing people on the ship and made a lot of new friends. It was a spectacular event and we enjoyed our travels from here in Virginia to Baltimore out to LA, then down to Long Beach where the QM is docked. We loved everything about our stateroom and our time aboard this remarkable vessel. We continued down the coast to San Diego and enjoyed the sand and surf before our flight home. It was a remarkable trip, one I’d do again in a heartbeat. The highlight for me was meeting Patricia in person as we’ve been online friends for years.
