Details

Caroline Jane Knight, Jane Austen’s fifth great niece, talks about dining and entertaining at Chawton House, her childhood home. As a young girl Caroline ate from the same dining room table and Wedgwood china as Jane Austen and loved cooking family recipes with her mother and grandmother. Caroline will share some of her favourite recipes and discuss the history of her family’s Wedgwood dinner service ordered when Jane visited Wedgwood’s London showroom with her brother Edward in September 1813. Some rarely seen pieces of this important family heirloom will be on show. 

Drinks from 6.30pm in the courtyard, talk begins at 7.00pm
