Prepare to meet Chris Tucker of The Great American Baking Show, an adaptation of The Great British Bake Off.

Channeling the wisdom from his great grandmother, a true Southerner, and baker at heart, Chris grew up baking with his grandmother Mimi, spending time in the kitchen creating and of course tasting delicious recipes.

Respecting all the beloved traditions of the Southern meal and drawing on the flavors
of Mimi’s recipes, Chris reimagines each ingredient through a contemporary plant-based lens…bringing his outrageously delicious wholly plant-based Southern Dinner Party from LA to frame, next month.

Plan on the sounds of bluegrass and r&b, fried CKN, collard greens, and corn casserole…alongside botanically infused cocktails riffing on traditional libations and organic, biodynamic wines by frame’s sommelier Sean Crenny.

There are no two ways about it.
Chris is the Real…Southern…Hospitality Deal.

“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!”

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“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.”
