Event Details

In early American tradition, an evening's entertainment with famiy and friends often ended with a supper. Part of the supper was a dessert display called a banquet. At this special event, enjoy delicious sweet treats commonly served in the homes of the upper and middling classes paired with traditional punches, often referred to as the "ancestor of eggnog." In other words: party like the Schuyler sisters. 

Immerse yourself in music and candlelight, admire beautiful tablescapes, and learn about recipes and holiday traditions from culinary historian Lavada Nahon.
