If you have Charcuterie  or The French Laundry Cookbook on your bookshelf, then we have a treat in store for you.

Prepare to spend an evening with James Beard Award-winning food writer Michael Ruhlman: he’s written and co-authored more than two dozen books about food, chefs, and the world of professional cooking.
He’s penned for The New York Times, Gourmet Magazine
and even enrolled in the Culinary Institute of America
completing the course to produce a first-person account of
procedure, personalities, and mindsets coming from the prestigious chef’s school.
The result, frame favorite beach read: The Making of a Chef. 

Committed to the home cook’s experience and education, we’ve curated an evening with Michael tapping his latest book
From Scratch…
which focuses on good cooking and eating of course.
But also what happens in the spaces between recipes.
Think ingredient substitutions and culinary improvisations in a gorgeous book covering 10 Meals, 175 Recipes, and Dozens of Techniques You Will Use Over and Over. 

24 intimate seats on the patio or inside the frame dining room to Taste. Sip. Learn.
With frame’s Chef Michael Barrera preparing a multi-course dinner inspired by the pages of the book.

Michael and Michael. The chef level in frame’s kitchen is about to get really hot!
Oh, and did we mention the last course (the dessert from the book!) will be prepared by Carla Spicuzzi, coming to us after years in NYC’s pasty kitchens from the likes of Bouchon Bakery and Per Se.

One Night Only. We’re jonesing for this one already…

“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!”

What are people saying?

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.”
