Lenox: Ventfort Hall to host tea and talk
"Repast or Dining Out, 1900-1910" is the subject of a Tea and Talk to be presented at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum, 104 Walker St.
The illustrated program will be given by historian Michael Lesy and his wife, Lisa Stoffer, co-authors of a new book titled "Repast: Dining Out at the Dawn of the New American Century, 1900-1910." They will be on hand to autograph copies during a Victorian tea following their lecture.
The duo will take the audience on a culinary tour of period restaurants and dining, starting with the simplest eateries and foods and culminating with the emergence of a true American way of fine dining.
Tickets are $18 for advance reservations and $23 day of event. Information/reservations: (413) 637-3206 or www.gildedage.org.
