frame presents  An Eastern European Sunday Dinner at Grandma Babcias with Larissa Popa, aka The Meatstress and Emilia Juocys
Larissa Popa loves meat so much she’s named herself around the heavenly provision.  A wise move, it turns out. Larrisa, aka The Meatstress, is fast becoming one of our region’s most talked about whole hog butchery and charcuterie mastress and our vocal ambassador of celebrating nose to tail eating, meaning nothing goes to waste.  Raised in a Romanian, Hungarian and German household as a first generation U.S. citizen, Larissa learnt first-hand about the subtleties of the Eastern Europe cuisine from her Polish Babcias. Larissa’s heart lies in what comes from her ethnic roots. Add in Emilia Juocys, the assistant to food writer Michael Ruhlman, working on content for books such as Salumi, Egg and Roast to this dinner and we’ve got a considerable level of charismatic talents in house. Also a first generation American, with immigrant parents from Poland and Lithuania, Emilia graduated Schoolcraft College’s Culinary Arts School, and trained under Brian Polcyn, honing her skills while working with him at Five Lakes Grill, Forest Grill, and Cinco Lagos.  Together in the frame kitchen, Chefs Larissa and Emilia are out to create an Eastern European Sunday family dinner emulating the same comforting experience, as if you would have stepped through their grandmothers front doors generation back. They are about to satisfy some food cravings we didn’t even know we had. Hungarian, Romanian and Polish flavors. And yes! there will be fresh pierogi on the table. And what did their sweet Polish Babcias have on the table to wash this all down you ask? Oh yes. Our frame beverage team has an intoxicating pairing that the generation would have approved of.  Polish vodka, Hungarian wines and the traditional Pálinka, a Hungarian fruit brandy appreciated for its potency, flavor, and fragrance. Prepare yourself for an Eastern European Sunday meal – “but in a very modern way”.
