A Foraging Field Trip
Chef Ken Miller
transportation by
Detroit Bus Company

Join us for a Saturday morning stroll in the woods as Chef, Nature Expert, Forager and
Gather-er Ken Miller of Toasted Oak in Novi leads a guided foraging tour, teaching the ins-and-outs of foraging, learning to identify the edible plants growing in Michigan and the importance of using your senses to enhance your cooking.

You’ll begin by meeting Chef Ken at frame and boarding a Detroit Bus Company bus with 20 fellow foragers for a hands-on foraging experience.

Mother Nature is one of our most precious resources, so the foraging location will not be able to be determined until a few days before the workshop. We do suggest long sleeves, hats, closed-toe shoes, gloves, and skipping your daily perfume spritz.

Also please note: as fall is yet to arrive, we can’t promise what Chef Ken will find on the trails.

But what we can ensure is that when you hop back on the bus, you’ll leave armed with a whole world of edible tastiness, new-found respect, and connection with the food you’re eating…and a light boxed lunch ready for you.
Because we know… one can’t survive on berries and bark alone.

Class is limited to 20 guests

“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.”
