Maybe Nicholas or Alix wrote something about this in their diaries...



Neither Alix nor Nicholas describe in their last diary entries their last meal, or any of the meals that day in any detail. Alix makes a reference to food only in that eggs had been brought for the Tsarevitch, and writes simply the word "supper" which took place at 8 o' clock in the evening. However, in other July entries she describes some of the food taken at their meals, lunch there was sometimes meat that was brought late (July 11th), and there is also a reference to soup on the same day. At the House, in the earlier months, Alix also noted "excellent bread" (June 18th), and "macaroni tart" (June 20th).

I believe the book FOTR mentions what the family's meals in the Ipatiev house sometimes consisted of, but not their last meal.

I have to say that I've never had my mouth washed out with soap, thank goodness.  It seems like it would be a most unpleasant experience. :P

Since it was their "last supper" and guards had tried to mug them of meat before... I can't imagine that they were treated any better...


This has been refuted in Fate of the Romanovs.  The guards did not steal food from them, or abuse them in any way while they were eating.  The reports of the guards "mugging them of meat" were exaggerations by sympathetic authors, I'm afraid.

    I have read of one homemade menu including macaroni cheese and a baked apple tart --but never a "macaroni tart" ...

   Of course macaroni is just a sort of pasta which could have been baked with a sweet cream or fruit paste for a sort of simple sweet.

I may be wrong though about the self styled menu.

Could it possibly be "macaroon" (am I spelling it correctly?) and not "macaroni"? In that case it makes a bit more sense.

A macaroon is a type of biscuit.

At the House, in the earlier months, Alix also noted "excellent bread" (June 18th), and "macaroni tart" (June 20th).


I don't think there was much variety in meals. In her diary Alix sometimes mentioned supper was like lunch, maybe leftovers.
Sednyov occasionally prepared vermicelli for Alix as she was ill. The rest of the family sometimes had cutlets.
I'm not sure, I thought the first weeks the meals were not cooked at the house but brought in. Later a kitchen was set up and Kharitonov cooked the meals .


Macaroons:a soft, chewy cookie made of sugar, egg whites, and ground almonds or coconut.
