Asian Sweet & Savory
Chef Ji Hye Kim of Miss Kim, Ann Arbor
Chef Sharyn Harding of Prime + Proper, Detroit
When we commissioned Chef’s, Ji Hye Kim (of Miss Kim, Ann Arbor) who grew up in Seoul, South Korea, obsessed with ancient Korean culinary texts and the finer points of fermentation…
And Chef Sharyn Harding (of Detroit’s Prime + Proper) who comes to us via Napa Valley and Las Vegas, working under the tutelages of swanky pastry kitchens from the likes of Wynn Resorts and Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery,
to share a meal and mash-up their Asian culinary philosophies…
The result came together as one night in frame with 6 special courses that are genius together.
3 savory from Chef Ji Hye Kim and 3 sweet from Chef Sharyn Harding.
The inspiration is simple according to these female culinary powerhouses stretching their creativity on this collaboration:
Choose your Friends wisely – and your ingredients even more Sagely.
Or is that visa-versa?
Regardless, the formula simply works here, showing the boys how it’s done.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
