English Pie and Mash
Chef Kieron Hales of Zingerman’s Cornman Farms
As an ode to March’s upcoming Pi Day and simply because were obsessed with giving frame a Quintessentially London makeover, we’re bringing you “Pie and Mash” with foodways from the UK homeland, inspired by Chef Kieron Hales culinary London upbringing.
If you’ve yet to dine with Kieron, you shall. He’s traveled the globe, living and cooking in 27 different countries, cooking for the British Royal family and holding posts with Paul Bocuse in France and Dal Pescatore in Italy, before emigrating to the States to join Zingerman’s and pursue his entrepreneurial aspirations.
Needless to say, we’re wild for Kieron’s exclusive St. Patrick’s Day residency in our kitchen. For this experience, frame will be set up as a rotating day-long of eating and drinking with tickets sold in pairs; seatings running an 1 1/2 hours long.
Each pair of tickets (or purchase multiple pairs for a larger party) is presented with a shared family-style nostalgic Pie and Mash meal, reminiscent of a bygone era, including: savory handmade pies, mashed potatoes, minted peas and traditional parsley liquor sauce.
Plus: it’s frame’s second birthday and we hear it’s recommended to wash the meal down with a hearty pint of Guinness, so we promise to have plenty on tap. Let’s let the shenanigans begin!

“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.”
