Lunch with The Countess of Carnarvon: Entertaining at the Real Downton Abbey
You are cordially invited for lunch in the company of The Countess of Carnarvon. Lady Carnarvon, author of At Home at Highclere: Entertaining at The Real Downton Abbey shares the stories of the great and the good, the art of hosting through the ages and, most critically, the delicious recipes to suit every occasion. From the crowd-pleasing Highclere Loin of Venison for a weekend treat, to Lord Carnarvon's Boozy Bramble Pudding - perfect on Burns Night.
Lady Carnarvon has delved into the archives to create a book that tells the story of four real life weekends, from 1866 to 1936, when the great and the good gathered at Highclere. Each weekend showcases the life of the house, both upstairs with the rich and famous and below stairs with the staff. It looks at what should be served for dinner, hot topics of conversation.
