A "mystery tour" for 17 ladies from the Northern Ohio area descended upon the museum to not only tour the museum, but also to discover what delicacies a typical Finn household would serve at a coffee table. A menu in both Finnish and English and a "Finn Facts" brochure added talking points during the meal.

The museum's own wonderful cooks and stylists created all the dishes and presented each serving table with a different tablecloth and tableware that would complement the colors.

Cooking and serving the courtesy meal were Ailiin Andrews, Sue Troutman, Linda Penttila, Pat Spivak, Elaine Kangas, Beverly Harbour, Suzanne Jokela, Helen Hadden, Mary Biller, and Hely Perttu. Serving as greeters and docents were Dick Lehtinen and Lasse Hiltunen.

The pictures tell the the very tasty story.
