It’s no secret that Charleston, SC is front and center in the culinary world with a trailblazing line-up of restaurants, chefs and must-try dishes. What does that mean for meeting planners? The chance to chow down on conference food that you and your attendees will actually want to eat. Dare: go beyond the boring buffet for your next event. 

Dare for delicious with these authentic local culinary experiences you’ll only find in Charleston:

1. Charleston in Good Taste with The Lee Bros. 

Sip, savor and shuck your way through authentic Charleston cuisine with Charleston natives and James Beard award-winning cookbook authors, Matt and Ted Lee, the Lee Bros. Not only do Matt and Ted create quintessential Charleston dishes, selected specifically for a group – they embody Charleston charm and tell a story about the history of that dish and how its ingredients and composition has progressed from centuries past to modern day. We like to think of them as a combination of recipe archeologists and cuisine curators providing the ultimate Charleston dinner show.
