Theater star Alfred Lunt enjoyed taking center stage in his kitchen from time to time. One of his specialities was cardamom bread.

Dean Schmitz, executive chef at Andrew's restaurant at the Delafield Hotel in Waukesha County, Wisc. That's not far from Ten Chimneys, the Northwoods home Lunt shared with his equally famous wife, actress Lynn Fontanne.

Schmitz, urged on by Wisconsin native Jacki Lyden, demonstrates how he makes the braided, egg-glazed treat.
