Fancy Dinners

While reading a biography it mentioned that Julia Grant (wife of President Grant) would host 29 course dinners. How does that work? Is each portion super tiny? I'm guessing good manners requires you take tiny bites of your food. Does every guest require 29 separate plates? It must take hours to eat in that manner.

Or maybe a 29 course dinner isn't what I imagine it to be.

The logistics of preparing such a meal boggles my mind.
