      ISSUE 3: CHARLESTON

      CHARLESTON WINE AND FOOD FESTIVAL

      Just as Charleston has made a name for itself as a dining destination, so, too, has the town’s Wine and Food Festival garnered national acclaim. Eat ribs at casual outdoor barbecues, take cooking classes, or get gussied up for fancy evening cocktail parties. This is one of America’s best events for sampling modern cuisine—often including local seafood, meat and vegetables.  The extravaganza isn’t reserved solely for Southerners, either; renowned chefs like Sean Brock of Husk cook multi-course meals right alongside chefs from California and Australia. It’s an event worth centering a trip around.
