Downton Abbey Dinner Menu

Downton Abbey dinner menu
I’ve been getting requests for the menu from the Downton Abbey dinner party that Dustin threw in February, so I thought I would share it here. It was a potluck and everyone contributed, but Dustin helped guide those of us who were new to the concept 0f a Downton Abbey dinner. We had an extravagant 8 course meal complete with drink pairings. There were also treats in the ladies’ and men’s parlors. It may look overwhelming, but if all guests contribute then it’s manageable. Helpful hint: Dustin used Eventbrite to let each guest RSVP and sign-up for which part of the meal they wanted to bring.
