Local chefs headed to Charleston Wine and Food Fest

A few of my favorite chefs are headed to Chucktown next week for the Charleston Wine and Food FestivalGreenville Chef, Chef Patrick Long of The Green Room will be joining Charleston's famed chefs Sean Brock, Mike Lata, Craig Deihl, Jeremiah Bacon, dozens of visiting chefs, and close to a hundred Low Country Chefs as they show off their culinary talents during this uber popular foodie fest. (It's not too late!  I'm available if someone wants to throw a ticket (or two) my way?)

You could say that Chef Patrick is headed home.  He spent his early career under the tutelage of notable Charleston chefs, working in the kitchens of both Old Village Post House and Wild Olive.  Long will be participating in the Culinary Village and will be manning the grill for a Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce and Fire Roasted Corn Salsa demo at 4:45pm on Sunday, March 9.  

If you'd like a little Greenville preview, of the dish he's taking to Charleston, sign up for the So Long Winter Blues Cooking Class at The Cook's Station this Tuesday, Febraruy 25.  Cost is $40 per person. 

Asheville's Chef Katie Button is also headed to the festival. She and her team own Curate and have just opened The Nightbell, a speakeasy, in downtown Asheville to rave reviews. Did you know she's a James Beard Semi-finalist for Rising Star Chef?  She will be cooking in the kitchen at High Cotton for the Perfectly Paired Dinner on Friday, March 7, 2014 at 7:00pm. She will also be hitting the grill for a demo on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 1:30pm - 2:15pm.  This will be at the Outdoor Living & Grilling Area, Culinary Village, Marion Square, so just scoot on over there if you should be one of the lucky ones hanging around with a glass of wine in hand at the festival!
It's not too late to head to the Low Country for some of the best food of your life. For Charleston Wine and Food Festival ticket information, you can go here.
