Exclusive Pop-Up Meal with Craig Lieckfelt and Mixologist Marlowe Johnson

It's a one-of-a-kind culinary adventure happening in Hazel Park. 

Internationally-renowned chef Craig Lieckfelt, Founder of FELT LIKE Soup, returns to metro Detroit with a special pop-up service at Frame Restaurant tonight and tomorrow night. He's pledged to give one soup per ticket purchased to food rescue organization Forgotten Harvest.

Lieckfelt has enlisted Detroit-renowned mixologist Marlowe Johnson, of Candy Bar, to craft beverage pairings for the menu during the event.  

They dropped by the Fox2 Kitchen Saturday morning to preview the event and showcase a few of their favorite recipes.
