How to Dine in Style: The Art of Entertaining, 1920 (Hardback)J. Rey (author)
Starched linens, candles, white gloves, apéritifs, ball suppers, French menus and garden-parties – this is the world of the decadent classes who came to prominence in the post-war period.
Published in an age where achieving a reputation for throwing recherché dinner parties was a route to international celebrity, this is a book about food as performance art. In it we catch tantalizing glimpses of astonishing excess such as the craze for eccentric venues for dinner parties, including the roof of a Chicago home (for amateur mountaineers), a lion’s den, and a gondola in the Savoy.
An engaging blend of practical advice and a catalogue of eccentricity, this book contains everything you need to know, from the fine art of composing a menu to the practicalities of the correct order and temperatures for serving wines.
