Experience Charleston, SC in Good Taste: The Lee Bros. Group Culinary Experience
Cook up a recipe for success at your next off-site group meeting, conference or event in Charleston, SC with an unforgettable Southern culinary experience with the Lee Brothers, James Beard award-winning cookbook authors and masters behind Charleston’s thriving culinary scene.
Beloved icons in the celebrity chef world, Charleston, SC natives Matt and Ted Lee grew up just minutes from Wild Dunes Resort in the heart of historic downtown Charleston. Award-winning cookbook authors and journalists for a host of national publications, from Travel + Leisure and Bon Appétit to the New York Times, the brothers bring their lively personalities and Southern palates to interactive group culinary experiences, introducing visitors to the distinctive concepts, ingredients and flavors of the Lowcountry.
Through fall 2015, meetings and groups visiting Wild Dunes Resort can sip, savor and shuck their way through authentic Charleston cuisine with the iconic duo themselves – choosing from a conversational cooking class, traditional Lowcountry oyster roast or custom dinner featuring recipes from any of the Lee Brothers’ award-winning cookbooks. The culinary connoisseurs will mingle with guests and guide them through the meal, explaining a bit about each dish—Southern specialties like Shrimp and Grits, Hoppin’ John and Oyster Pie.
Groups may customize their Lee Bros. Charleston culinary experience based on the size of the group and food preferences, choosing from one of the following specialized group culinary options:
