Cafe History a la Berghoff

When: Sat., March 6, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. 2010

Carlyn Berghoff, great-granddaughter of founder Herman, dishes on her famous family and the restaurant they've owned since 1898. Berghoff talks about erstwhile items from the restaurant's menu--beer-braised pork loin, for instance, and "bacony" green beans--though as a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, she's here to offer more contemporary cooking tips as well. Berghoff is joined by Nancy Ross Ryan, with whom she authored two cookbooks, both available for purchase and signing. The event is hosted by the Culinary Historians of Chicago, who are taking reservations: call Barbara Olson at 708-788-0338, or e-mail

Price: $5/$3 students/Free for CHC members
