frame presents An Australian Dinner with New Zeland Wines curated by Anthony Allport and Dinner by Chef Rebecca LaMalfa
Dedicated wine dinners are one of our favorites to produce. At frame we love embracing new tastes and textures, bringing you together to dine communally and make new friends. For this early March dinner we’re weaving together Chef Rebecca LaMalfa’s love and knowledge of cooking for an evening highlighting the beauty of Australian flavors with local ingredients and a pairing of New Zealand wines to bring together an evening of lingering and experience. California native, Chef Rebecca LaMalfa draws her farm-to-table ethics from growing up on a Chico farm, honing her ambitious but balanced dishes by taking seasonal ingredients and treating them in the most thoughtful way possible. With a dual degree in culinary and pastry from the Culinary Institute of America, she’s worked under the tutelages of chefs from the likes of Michael Mina and Gregory Pugin. Rebecca opened Chicago’s Trenchermen ( one of Bon Appétit ‘Top 50 Best Restaurants) and appeared as the brilliant brunette on “Top Chef’s” Season 12. But more importantly … she now adds new mother to her wall of fame, with the very recent birth of Finnegan Thomas Lents, with her husband Thomas Lents of The Foundation Hotel.  We’re only preparing one seating each night…on purpose….so we can all gather and linger a little longer for this wine dinner experience as our wine director and sommelier, Bryan Lamorena and Anthony Allport of Whanau Imports will be table-side to learn from, indulge with and interact with these very special wines. Retail bottles will be available for take home or cases will be available a few days later to relive your New Zealand experience well into the spring.
