Undiscovered Charleston Food History Tour with Lunch
Chef Forrest Parker, the city’s only Palmetto Guild Certified chef guide, leads you on a 3-hour experience unlike any other. You’ll begin with a 90 minute walking tour, exploring the complicated history of the Holy City and the culinary influences that shaped Charleston into one of the world’s top food destinations. You’ll visit the not-to be missed sights, but also the lesser known and understood locations where, for example, an enslaved chef created a recipe that still helps define local menus. The tour concludes at the cozy Bistro A Vin where you’ll relax while Chef Forrest teaches you how to cook three dishes from recipes he wrote interpreting definitive Lowcountry classics, and prepared using techniques he mastered over two decades. He’ll serve you those recipes for lunch while you enjoy a carefully curated wine pairing (or cool, delicious sweet tea if you’d prefer). You’ll go home with Chef Forrest’s recipes as his gift to you.
