Friendsgiving with Chef Kieron Hales of Cornman Farms
Friendsgiving. The pop-culture experience that blends Friends and Thanksgiving. More relaxed than the classic American holiday you grew up with; yet similar to the scene of when the Pilgrims invited the Native Americans over for the autumn harvest. So how do we welcome November and do Friendsgiving, frame style? Big long tables, loud fun music, lots of wine from frame’s beverage director Bryan Lamorena, shared platters of turkey that have been brined in juniper berries and cooked sous vide, roasted carrots glazed with honey from Community Farms of Ann Arbor, crispy stuffing, salted butterscotch pudding and more, served family-style from Chef Kieron Hales of Zingerman’s Cornman Farms. Best Friends. Neighbor Friends. Rust Friends (people you’ve known forever!) Work Friends. DanceMom Friends. Transplant From other Cities Friends. College Friends. Friends you’d like to get to know better. Friends. Invite them all. Make your own Friendsgiving party at (frame) Family invited, but not exactly encouraged. It’s called Friendsgiving…For a reason.
