From Korean Bo SSam Kimchee Pie Poppers to Brown Sugar Hand Pies, food writer and book author Cathy Barrow’s frame experience, Pie. It’s What’s For Dinner, really takes the cake.
And when we say pie, we redefine the view to mean anything wrapped up in pastry dough.

We can hardly wait for you to meet Cathy Barrow, cooking teacher, pie maker, book author and food writer for the Washington Post’s Food section, New York Times and Saveur coming to frame for two days to wrap our world in a mix of sweet and savory pies.

She’s starting off her weekend at frame with a Friday evening of Pie. It’s What’s For Dinner,  based on her two hit books:
2019 James Beard Nominated Pie Squared: Irresistibly Easy Sweet & Savory Slab Pies
When Pies Fly: Handmade Pastries from Strudels to Stromboli. Empanadas to Knishes. Executed in frame’s kitchen by Adela Bejo of our city’s very own Hip Hop Bake Shop.

Following the next day, Cathy is hosting two Spring Pie Workshops tackling cream cheese dough, raspberry pie, puff pastry, and antipasto stromboli.

We’re obsessed. And so are our brains reshaping the understanding of pie.

“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.”
