Southern Cooking

Our daughter, Isabelle, has been working in Charleston, SC for over a year now at a very fine catering company - Duvall Catering. She's doing so many crazy fun things for a first year employee! Taking cooking classes with one of the chefs so she can be in charge of setting up / managing a cooking school at the company! Planning parties, designing flowers, creating menus and generally "changing the world one party at a time." (Her line!)

Even though I lived in Charleston for eight years I can't say I became the expert she is on Southern cuisine. She's learning from the Shawn Brock at Husk, the Lee Brothers and from a few of the entrepreneurial types who create classic Southern food and sell it online!

Here are a few - some I've tried - some she's just recommended. Fun to try new things!

Homemade Tonic - Just right for Lee! My gin and tonic guy.
You can buy this on Callie's Biscuit's Site.

From a small family farm in South Carolina - just ordered so will let you know !
Ditto -

Callie's cheese and chive biscuits. A totally divine splurge!

Izzy bought this for her "guncles" and brothers for last Christmas. A hit!
Bloody mix. Made with beef broth!

Apparently, a huge favorite. Izzy's roommate's mom owns this company.

I'll keep my eyes open for a good shrimp and grits and pass it on when i find it!
