San Francisco SupperClub
Conifer (Traverse City Chefs Patrick and Michael Evans)
Detroit’s Mongers Provisions
This chef-brotherhood is firing on all cylinders. All four, Zach Berg, William Werner, and Michael and Patrick Evans, individually spent several years in San Francisco (under the training of Bar Tartine, Atelier Crenn and Lord Stanley to name a few) where they honed their crafts and gained experience, before returning home to Michigan to begin their true culinary adventures.
Brothers Michael and Patrick Evans settling back home in Traverse City with Cook’s House and their wildly popular Northern Michigan pop-up concept Conifer TC based on Michigan produce and foraged foods.
And Zach Berg and William Werner, adored cheese and chocolate geeks who both have a love for hospitality, and a gorgeous Detroit outfitter, Monger’s Provisions, specializing in phenomenal local and global cheese, chocolate and charcuterie.
So what happens when these four now re-unite in frame’s kitchen for a joint dinner collaboration focused on all of their favorite ingredients? Let’s just say no one leaves hungry.

“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.”
