Les Dames d'Escoffier St Louis Presents: Kitchen Confidential - How the Culinary Scenes from Downton Abbey Were Filmed
Please join us for a dinner talk by Dame CiCi Williamson from LDEI's Washington, D.C. Chapter with photographs about the researching, styling, and filming of the food scenes for "Downton Abbey". CiCi's talk is based on an interview she did in London of Lisa Heathcote, the British food stylist who produced the foods for the six-year series. Also included in the presentation will be the history of Highclere Castle (site of the :Downton Abbey" estate); a comparison of the real Earls of Carnarvon with the fictitious Earl of Grantham and the Crawley family; and how the lavish food service of Victorian and Edwardian England influenced Downton Abbey tables.
The dinner will be held in the heart of the Central West End at Mary Ann's Tea Room, 4732 McPherson in a 1921 historical building that existed during the "Downton Abbey" period.
Mary Ann's chef will be working with Les Dames d'Escoffier to create a few recipes of the Victorian and Edwardian Eras that were prepared and served during the six year Downton Abbey-TV series. We'll try to make Mrs. Patmore proud!
