The historic Governor Gore estate in Waltham, Massachusetts, will offer a special evening tour entitled, An Evening In the Mansion: Entertaining in the Time of the Gores.
If you think __you __had a big meal on Thanksgiving Day, just wait until you see how people entertained in the time of Christopher and Rebecca Gore. In the early 1800s, dinner parties provided an opportunity to “wow” guests with bountiful food and plentiful drink. Dining tables, serving tables and sideboards were laden with food, the room darkened and the candles lit before guests were ushered in. The dinner, which lasted for hours, consisted of many courses including the highly anticipated piece de resistance, the principal dish of the meal.
