Author Becky Libourel Diamond

The author discusses her book, “The Thousand Dollar Dinner,” the story of a 19th-century culinary challenge between Philadelphia restaurateur James Parkinson and the Delmonico family of New York. The result was a luxurious 17-course feast featuring dishes such as baked rockfish, braised pigeon, turtle steaks, spring lamb, out-of-season fruits and vegetables, and desserts, all paired with rare wines and liquors. The book covers the entire meal, course by course, explaining each dish and its history. 

Diamond will bring samples of the food featured in the book.
