    Christy Seelye-King

    “The pleasure of your company is requested…” An invitation to a formal dinner requires grace, skill, poise, and the correct wardrobe for those attending from both upstairs and downstairs. Seating, serving, manners, and a mastery of your silverware can make or break you in a social situation! Many tune in each week to follow the drama of the Crawley family (and their servants) in post-Edwardian England. Chef Christy Seelye- King will explore the formality of dining in this period and help you hone the etiquette necessary to survive in a formal dining room setting. British social hierarchy will play out as each attendee will be given a name with their title/position attached, and we’ll play a Dining Room Game that will test your best skills and manners with a ‘mock meal’. Students will prepare two popular Edwardian desserts which tie in to the show and these will be served at the end of class:
    • Charlotte Russe
    • Peach Melba (both of which tie in to the show)
