Give me a clue what is a Vol au Vent Mogador? Is that the chicken one with stodgy mushroom soup in it or a fancy Russian one with beluga caviar?

As for Farmyard Pork - dont think any of the pork on board ship had ever seen a farmyard!

Wishing you all rge best for Christmas

Hi Tony

I suspect vol au vents were chicken or mushroom and were either white or brown depending on content but can't remember which was Mogador! And you're probably very right about pork.

Have good Christmas & New Year

Somewhere I have the 1965 Christmas menu from the sister ship CITY OF PORT ELIZABETH / GPLC.

I'll dig it out, probably in time for next Christmas!!
