Biltmore Traditions: A Collection of Menus, Recipes, and Stories, created by Biltmore®, explores Biltmore as a culinary destination deeply rooted in the customs of fine dining, etiquette, and old-world charm.
In the Vanderbilts? day, guests at Biltmore were celebrated in the finest style. Sometimes that meant a telegram to New York City, requesting that a shipment of Blue Point oysters?or another exotic delicacy?be sent on the overnight train to Biltmore. More often, guests enjoyed the bounty of the estate itself, including fresh beef and poultry, a wide array of fruits and vegetables, and dairy products from the estate?s prize-winning Jersey herd. We hope this book brings you and those you love together a little more often around the table, across the miles, and through the years to celebrate the most memorable occasions.
