frame presents Forage and Feast with Chef Ken Miller of Toasted Oak benefitting Detroit Public Radio Station WDET and supporting Ann Delisi’s Essential Cooking Series
For as long as Chef Ken Miller can remember, nature and food have shared a space very close to his heart. Summers as a young child were spent at his grandparents’ house where he fell in love with the garden and the forest, picking mulberries for jams and running his hands over the herbs; becoming intoxicated with the alluring scent of fresh lovage, lemonbalm and mint. From early on he knew that nature was his sanctuary. How he would weave the fabric of food into his passion came next.  Studying at Le Cordon Bleu and working through numerous kitchens from the likes of Kuma’s Corner, NoMI Kitchen, Acadia and Cicchetti, Ken now comes full circle and calls Michigan “home” both literally and metaphorically.  Testing practices of our ancestors that lived off the land out of necessity, Chef Ken clearly understands the beauty of nature and all it has to offer us both in spirit and on our plates.  Ever the adventurists, we owe it to ourselves and those before us to share an evening absorbing Ken’s foraging culture and his stunning cuisine based on the preservation of the world around us.
