So, there are bound to be some Chowhounders that attended the festivities. What did everyone think? My thoughts are below.
Grand Tasting Tents/Culinary Village
This was markedly improved from last year. There was much more room with the additional grand tasting tent and outdoor café seating. I’m still craving the roasted cauliflower soup with truffle oil from Middleton Place.
Bubbles & Sweets
This was very well-done. The selection of desserts from local restaurants and national outfits (Le Bernardin!) was excellent. This got a little crowded but was definitely manageable. Will attend this next year.
BBQ & Blues
I enjoyed this even more than Bubbles & Sweets. Friendly & casual atmosphere with a fantastic selection of BBQ. Chicken, pulled pork, ribs, collards, mac & cheese, so delicious! Fantastic hog display from Charleston Bay Gourmet. Awesome music too.
