Food & Wine
Sommelier Of The Year
the open-air tent @ frame
Students: prepare to meet Liz Martinez, 2019 Food & Wine Magazine Sommelier of the Year, as she takes Summer School through a tasting of wines that are a little bit off the beaten path; obscure varieties with a focus on the Old World.
Liz Martinez (Chicago’s Purple Pig. Detroit’s Prime + Proper. And named most buzz-worthy somm by The Chicagoist and one of three somms to watch out for by Forbes Magazine) has a longtime love affair with wines of history and a sense of place.
In this Old World Wine Masterclass, we will taste wines with a story and understand a few of their narratives, talk about the countries that they come from, and taste a few bites made from the frame kitchen. These may not be wines that were on your radar before, but they will be after this!
Sip, snack, master the bottles and go home with all the expertise you need to create your perfect August wine fridge.
Each workstation will be socially distanced and adhere to our response plan that includes every measure of protocol on workplace infection-control practice and health and safety training.

“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!”

“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.”
