Join returning speaker Francine Segan and discover the elaborate etiquette, enchanting entertainments, and dishes Mrs. Patmore would have been proud to send to the table. Vivid descriptions of Lord Grantham-esque dinner parties, cotillions, and elegant picnics will transport you back in time, while you learn all the popular toasts of the era and when it's proper to remove your gloves or tip your hat. Segan will invite you to guess the uses for some now-obsolete objects that Mr. Carson would be shocked to
find you couldn't use properly.

Francine Segan, one of America's foremost experts on Italian cuisine,
is an engaging public speaker, author and TV personality. A noted food historian and James Beard-nominated author of six books including
Dolci: Italy's Sweets and Pasta Modern.
