As an ode to keeping Wednesday’s délicieuse, February frame@home … Goes to Paris! Meet: Chef Joseph VanWagner (Chicago’s Purple Pig, Chartreuse, Bacco Ristorante) And Chef Ian Frahm, whose cut his teeth in dozens of kitchens, meeting all manners of amazing people from unique food communities along the way, with one pivotal stop working under David Chang at Momofuku.

Together in the frame kitchen, these two masterminds have tapped into an understanding of the way we want to eat right now … with a modern approach that puts French food center stage.

Think Rillette Toast (grilled rye, confit chicken leg whipped with whole grain mustard and Featherstone Garden petite greens ). Cassoulet ( white, beans, mirepoix and tomato, braised with chicken, duck, and pork ragu). French Onion Soup (brioche and gruyere). And Classic Apple Tatin.
