Think of the Children, and Eat This!

Chef Robert Carter, currently of Carter’s Kitchen and Rutledge Cab Company, hosted the first Chefs' Feast fifteen years ago. Driven by the desire to help end childhood hunger close to home, Carter has watched the event grow from just nine participating chefs in its first year to an impressive roster of over thirty chefs from some of the area’s most successful restaurants. With so many chefs in attendance, the event serves not only as a very successful fundraiser for a noble cause but also as an excellent showcase of the Charleston culinary scene. Eat This! was in attendance this year with the goal to try them all, and at the suggestion of Lowcountry Food Bank’s Dana Mitchel, a plan of attack was formulated and a worthy effort was certainly made.

 

 

Bacon. Bourbon. Bliss.

 RHR2748edTwo lines wound their way into Memminger Auditorium, and we chose the one that seemed to lead towards the smell of bacon and away from the cold. As it happened, our chosen line deposited us between the booths of King Street’s Kitchen 208 and Mount Pleasant’s Southerly Restaurant. From Kitchen 208, John Robertson was serving a dish reminiscent of the restaurant’s Cobblestone sandwich - a bacon waffle topped with local tomatoes, arugula, slightly deviled egg, and a garnish of candied bacon. Chad Billings of Southerly took a heavier approach with a bacon lollipop - savory pork belly with kimchi and radish over grits.
