Wednesday, January 20th
Kathryn Allamong Jacob “King of the Lobby: The Life and Times of Sam Ward, Man About Washington During the Gilded Age“ www.kingofthelobby.com
Why is this Gilded Age lobbyist relevant to the Culinary Historians? Sam combined delicious food, fine wines, and delightful conversation to create a new kind of lobbying in Washington after the Civil War. In a capital city where the food at official dinners was often appallingly bad, Sam reigned over the new social lobby that he created at his dinner table for more than a decade. Those who dined with him gushed that his evenings were "noctes ambrosianae"!
