Catherine Lambrecht, Highland Park Historical Society, and
Nicole Stocker, Museum Education Manager at the Bess Bower Dunn Museum

Dive into the Dunn Museum’s collections to explore two 1800s Crofton family cookbooks that were used at Fort Sheridan with guest speaker Cathy Lambrecht and Museum Educator Nicole Stocker. Learn more about the Crofton family’s time at Fort Sheridan and hear about Cathy and Nicole’s experiences at testing out some of the recipes. Participants are invited to test out recipes from the cookbook prior to the program as well, and then share their experiences along with the presenters, though it is not required to join the program. Recipe options will be emailed to participants prior to the program and can be found on the Dunn Museum’s YouTube channel under #NotDunnYet.
