California GOLD RUSH Wine Dinner with Source & Sink

Jan 18th

California GOLD RUSH Wine Dinner
with wines by
Sonoma Valley’s
Source and Sink
and a GOLD RUSH era dinner
Chef Rebecca LaMalfa



Meet our new California friends Source & Sink coming to frame to share their brilliant farm-focused wines from Sonoma Valley.  110-year old Alicante Bouschet vines.  Organic farming.  Minimal intervention in the fields.  Needless to say, very welcomed guests at our next up, California GOLD RUSH dinner.

Plan on frame’s communal dinner tables bristling with foods made famous during this rousing era when gold made miners rich overnight = San Francisco’s famous sourdough bread, savory fritters with smoked trout, venison with brown butter cabbage and the culinary icon of the time: The Hangtown Fry, invented by a frenzied miner who requested the finest and most expensive meal in the house…omelets made with bacon and oysters, held together by the symbolic golden egg.

Source & Sink winemakers Rande Feldman & Aaron Cherny will be mingling table-side to share tasting notes of their vibrant included pairing along with music by the Eagles (think Hotel California).

Panning for gold here?
Sort of —- we’re quite eager for a taste of Gold Rush history in frame’s very own kitchen.

“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.”
