 A Spanish and Portuguese Conserva Dinner
Andrew Gietzen of Preserved States
and wines by
Ole & Obrigado


With November in full swing at frame we’re joined by Chicago’s Andrew Gietzen, who fell in love with Spanish and Portuguese culture after loads of travel and 20 years of working in restaurants throughout Chicago. Cooking alongside some of the most decorated chefs in the country, Chris Pandel, Curtis Duffy, and Matthias Merges, Andrew established Preserved States to seek out conservas he longed to offer guests but could not readily find available.

Perfecting his beautiful simple style, Andrew brings us super-effing-tasty dishes like Porchetta di Testa with tonnato sauce and anchovy brined chicken thighs with white clams and soft herbs. 

A stellar chef and the most stand up, type of guy you just want to hang out with; Andrew also brings along one of the most badass collections of estate wines from Spain and Portugal from importer Ole & Obrigado with a mission to show off the incredible diversity of all corners of the Iberian Peninsula. 

Craftsmanship, passion, tinned fish and terroir are at the core of everything about this night. We can hardly wait.

“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.”
