Exclusive Dinner in Glessner House Dining Room
March 12 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm CDT
Mattie Williamson was the Glessner’s much beloved cook, serving the family for over 20 years. This exclusive event will recreate a six-course dinner in the dining room, based on actual foods prepared by Mattie, followed by a two-course dessert in the coach house, when guests will have a chance to learn about her life as a cook in a large Chicago household during the Gilded Age.
A ticket can be purchased for the full evening or simply the dessert portion of the night.
Additional events honoring Mattie will be held throughout the week.
