Southern Comfort with Master Chef Shawn Loving

Dec 7th

Southern Comfort
Master Chef Shawn Loving

Chef Shawn Loving has created a name and a groove, completely of his own.
One of 68 Master chefs in the US, Shawn has hailed as executive chef for the U.S. Olympic Games in Beijing and Rio de Janeiro, currently reigns as department chair of Schoolcraft College’s Culinary Arts program and most recently named a Certified Master Chef by the American Culinary Federation.
The ultimate test of culinary skill, knowledge, and creativity; some say its the equivalent of an exclusive culinary Ph.D.

With a reverence for modern techniques, Shawn brings his art of dining to frame with a winter dinner party based on flavors from his coveted restaurant, Loving Spoonful, along with southern hospitality and a personal tribute to winter comfort food.
Think classic Hoppin’ John, cherry-scented smoked ribs, crispy fried tomato with provençal compote, bourbon caramel brioche bread pudding and Ma Ma’s sweet potato pie with candied walnuts.

Add candlelight, nowhere to be on your calendar, and treat yourself to this wildly beloved Saturday night with our city’s very own, Shawn Loving.
We’re in awe.

“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!”

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.”
