A Nordic Kräftskiva
Cocktail Party and Workshop

the patio @ frame

Kicking it on the patio@frame, we’re bringing a uniquely Swedish early August Nordic Summer Party and Cocktail Workshop, Kräftskiva – style.

We’re partnering with bartender turned distiller, Robyn Cleveland of Norden Aquavit for a summer evening of silly paper Swedish hats, lanterns, and a whole lot of drinking. Together we’ll create garden-fresh cocktails anchored by 10 unique botanicals including caraway, dill, clementine peel, clary sage, and native staghorn sumac.

Learn everything you need to make the most of Swedish flavors and plan on a journey through the rich history of Scandinavia’s native spirit by way of our own state’s lovely abundant natural beauty and diverse agriculture. Plan on a tasty Nordic welcome punch, hands-on cocktail making, crayfish, and Swedish snacks.

Summer Scandinavian Style, Socially Distanced. We’re excited for this one!

“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.”
