Lady Carnarvon comes to Montreal. Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey)
Updated: Jul 22
Fun afternoon meeting up with Lady Carnarvon (Countess Carnarvon) in Montreal from the Come and Dine at Highclere dinner party competition. Her book "At Home at Highclere" is available on Amazon. We prepared seven of it's recipes for our runner up win.
We had a lovely tea and conversation about the competition and her vintage garden party held at her home, Highclere Castle, the filming location for the hit PBS TV show Downton Abbey.
We gifted her with a copy of Gerald's book published last year. The 100 year history of his home town in northern Canada. The page she is reacting to is a picture of Gerald and I attending her garden party.
With our good friend Kathy, who also participated with us in the Come and Dine Competition.
Lady Carnarvon continues her Canadian speaking tour at the Pointe-à-Callière museum in old Montreal. This special program is presented within the institutions members of the History Museums Network, a Canada-wide network of institutions dedicated to the sharing and preservation of history.
