Publican Quality Bread

Whole grains. Long fermentation. Greg Wade’s hands. The tactile feel of flour from the elasticity of the dough, to the crackle of a fresh-baked loaf.

We humbly re-welcome from Chicago, Publican Quality Bread genuine mega-talent Greg Wade, the 2019 recipient of the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Baker award, for his second residency in the frame kitchen.

Growing up outside Milwaukee, Greg credits his baking tutelages to his mother, grandmother and Chef Stephanie Izard of Chicago’s coveted Girl & The Goat, where he oversaw the world of bread baking. Now, part of the Publican Quality family, Greg spends his days working hand-in-hand with Chef de Cuisines and biodynamic farmers to develop bread from ethically sourced ingredients and wild yeasts.

Following his spring honor and prestigious James Beard Foundation win, Greg focuses even more of his dedication to the importance of working together to improve America’s food system – for the 1%, for the 99%, for Democrats, for Republicans, for black lives matter, for blue lives matter. And we all have to start working together,” he says.

Join us for this rather brilliant menu featuring seeded rye and speck salad
with truffled peach olives and raviolo with brown butter sauce.
And yes, we knew you were wondering. There will be boards and boards of his divine bread on the table.
Boy are we excited.

“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.”
