So anyways. Pondering again the Charleston website, what the hell is Low Country? Especially Low Country Cuisine? Anyone? I know the south, and I know comfort food. Same thing, right? Mashed Potatoes, Cornbread, Gritts, Biscuits, Gravy, Beans, Craw-fish, Oysters, Lobster....did I cover everything? Either way, it sounds damn good. This will be my second experience in Fine Dinning, and as much as I really want to learn as much as I can about it, lets face it, fine dinning food = not so beuno. I cant speak for everyone of course, because I am not wealthy and can not ritually go out to 5 diamond restaurants and eat $90 steaks. If you do live that lifestyle, I congratulate you. Your life must be wonderful. Anyways, its more of a curious event for me. Having my paws on such fine food, going to such fine people. Food in which the ingredients cost more than I probably make in a day. Same goes to most of the chefs who work in fine dinning, who leave thier shift and go pick up the greasiest, nastiest, left over burger from a joint down the street. Now that, is comfort food.
What was this about?
Oh right, Low Country Food.
So, I consider this a journey. A journey to the so called, un-explored, "Low Country". I want the best tasting, living, breathing, bleeding, southern food thrown at me. I know my boyfriend will add something to this about being an extreamly picky eater, and having crappy dietary restrictions, but I still want to explore.
This is will be a new journey, moving to a new area. Completed in culinary school, with a degree in Pastry Arts. Bring it on South Carolina.
I Dare You.
