Labor Day Weekend Grilling Kits

Casa Amado

This fall we are rather elated to introduce: frame@home, the art of next-level carryout.  Bringing you a fresh, ongoing series of weekly chef-driven dinner boxes.  Each rocking distinct concepts and all taking place in the comfort of your own home.  Each frame@home box features a selection of our all-time favorite dishes inspired by the countless talented chefs we’ve welcomed through our frame kitchen over the past 3+ years.  Some frame@home boxes will be family-style; convenient, low effort dinner masterpieces. Others will be more of a production, multiple course meal kits that require exercising just a tad bit of culinary skill.  One thing is for certain: these special edition frame@home boxes will all be led by chefs coming out of the frame kitchen.  Packaged and curated to make sure your dinners look, travel, and taste well.

With an extraordinary roster of chefs to choose from, the possibilities are pretty much endless. We couldn’t be more excited to launch frame@home with classically trained Mexican Chef Amado Lopez, of Casa Amado , the culinary badass who just finished a sold-out 3-week residency at frame.

First up?  Labor Day Weekend Grilling Kits by Chef Amado. Think marinated Al Pastor skewers with pineapple adobo glaze, Chipotle Garlic Chicken Skewers with Mexican garlic whip sauce, chips and chefs home-made guacamole, Salsa Rojo, Ensalada with pickled red onion, and DIY Mexican street corn with lime aioli, queso, cilantro, and chili flakes.

This frame@home Labor Day Kit kit will include step-by-step instructions for mastering grilled meats and creating the ultimate BBQ accompaniments.
Just Add Fire….and maybe some drinks!
And Labor Weekend Day. Voila: we are ready for you!

Pick up times are carefully chosen to ensure your dinners are picked up fresh behind our building. Please stay in your car and our team will bring your frame@home box(es) out to you.

Aaaaand for frame@home we’ve expanded our pick up radius to include a partnership with Kako’s Fine Wine, Beer & Spirits in Birmingham. A little gem of a store you really need to acquaint yourself with if you haven’t already…. an absolute must in the frame books!  Choose Birmingham to pick up at checkout and be sure to save time to run in and grab some more libations! Pro tip: Check out their killer hand-selected, limited edition bottles of bourbon and tequila, and a ridiculously good selection of wine.

Ding-Dong. Dinner Is Done. School and fall schedules are all about to look a bit different starting next month. so here’s to:

“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.”
