Symposium: Eat, Drink & Be Merry – Servant Kitchens in the Victorian Era
This symposium will explore dining customs, from the recipes used to the appropriate utensil required for each type of food consumed during the multi-course feasts. Back of house will be examined as well, showing how kitchens developed during the period, and what it was like for the kitchen staff to prepare the elaborate foods in the days before labor-saving devices. An opening reception will be held on November 8. See website for full details.
