Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Ice Cream Takeover
Guernsey Farms Dairy
and a beer collaboration with
Short’s Brewing

We love us some HOT chicken and ice cream at frame (and no we’re not pregnant) so we are geeked to announce our next up rotating residency: a collaboration with Novi’s Guernsey Farms Dairy and their 3rd family generation homestyle Buttermilk Fried Chicken Recipe.

Yes. Yes, you do want to do this!

This frame family meal takeover marries everything the Michigan dairy has been doing since 1940: Tillamook cheddar macaroni and cheese, whipped potatoes with gravy, buttermilk biscuits with hot honey, braised green beans with rendered pork belly and Guernsey Farms Dairy ice-cream, scooped table-side with homemade whip cream and all the fixings.

Major Bonus…Boozy Milkshakes and a Beer collaboration by Short’s Brewing

This deliciousness happens for two days: January 31st and February 1st.
Families encouraged …. as this Spilled Milk is worth crying over.

January 31 and February 1
$45 per person (sold only in pairs) plus tax and service fee

“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.”
