The Downton Abbey Dinner Party

Last Saturday my friend Rebecca decided, all on her own, to cook a seven course meal inspired by Downton Abbey to celebrate the fourth season coming out.  She cooked all day and wouldn’t accept anything in return apart from the deep gratitude and enjoyment of her dinner guests.

The Menu:

And don’t forget, dinner will be followed by a coffee and tea service accompanied by the first episode of Downton Abbey.

It’s been a while since I watched this show, but I have to say that this meal was more than decadent enough to have been served.  Although, as Rebecca informed me, seven courses was the minimum.  Insane.
