Chef Edward Lee & Chef Kevin Ashworth sneak preview Cincinnati’s Khora

Apr 17th

A Sneak Preview
Chef Edward Lee
Chef Kevin Ashworth

You may already know the face of Edward Lee, the Brooklyn-born chef, and restaurateur, for his appearances on The Mind of a Chef on PBS and his James Beard Awarded Book, “Buttermilk Graffiti,” exploring the melting pot cuisine of today’s America.

Truth be told, we’ve long had a huge crush on Edward for how he celebrates Southern and Korean flavor combining. So when we snagged a spot for him to cook in our frame kitchen previewing his new Cincinnati restaurant Khora, we knew the experience was kismet.

Khora, spotted on both Vogue and Food & Wine Magazine lists of 2020’s “Most Anticipated Restaurant Openings”, will be helmed by Chef Kevin Ashworth, who has traveled and cooked with Chef Edward for years and helms the kitchen as Executive Chef of Lee’s wildly coveted 610 Magnolia.

Showcasing Chef Kevin’s creative menu of bold pasta and global flavors, frame’s Khora Sneak Preview promises a pasta driven-bent with grains sourced from Ohio: emmer, einkorn, spelt and high-quality semolina. History note: the name Khora comes from “khorasan,” one of the oldest ancient grains also known as kamut.

Mark your calendars. And let’s do what we do best:  share this frame experience from one table to the next.

“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.”
