Event Description

The Lightner Museum welcomes world-renowned food historian and James Beard-nominated author, Francine Segan, to St. Augustine for a series of lectures, tastings, and a Gilded Age dining experience that is sure to be memorable. 

Ms. Segan will present The Art of Dining: “The Table at Downton Abbey”, at the Casa Monica Hotel Ballroom.  Discover the elaborate etiquette, enchanting entertainments and dishes Ms. 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. The event includes a trivia contest on the uses for now-obsolete objects that Mr. Carson would be shocked to find you couldn’t use properly.  

A portion of the proceeds from this event go to sustaining development and programs at the Lightner Museum.


This event is sponsored in part by St. Johns County Tourist Development Council, Casa Monica, and Visit Florida.

Tickets are non-refundable.
