Dining at Downton: Trial by Fork

Saturday, October 26, 2019

Could you have survived a “trial by fork” sans faux pas? “Dining at Downton” explores mealtimes at Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey the movie is here, and many of us have questions about subtler points of the Crawley family’s life on their Yorkshire estate.

 Much of the plot for Downton Abbey revolves around the dinner table.  Explore the final years of a time when one changed into dinner clothes and chose jewelry to reflect candlelight, where setting the table and serving a meal was an art.  Any dinner at Downton Abbey is a well-choreographed dance performed with military precision.  Everyone from the hostess and guests to the butler and kitchen maid, know the parts they are to play.

 In this one-hour program, food historian Tames Alan demystifies the manners, menu, and accoutrements of a formal 12-course dinner as would have been eaten upstairs at Downton Abbey before the outbreak of World War One.
