Charleston Wrap Up day 1

The Charleston food and wine festival is a wonderland of activities, food, drinks and enough local products to send a locavore into a coma.  This year we had the opportunity to live it up in Charleston and enjoy all the sites and flavors of this historic southern city, while sampling cuisine from some of the best chefs in the South.

It’s very hard to summarize all the excitement, culinary delights and festivities into a short and sweet post so here are some of the highlights from an amazing weekend of eating, drinking, laughing and enjoying life to the fullest in a beautiful southern city.

Our first introduction to the festival was at the Opening Night Ceremony.  Featuring all of Charleston’s hottest and most sought after chefs flexing their culinary muscle to wow and stimulate the masses. So many great delights to tantalize our taste buds left us all in massive overload.  A good night of sleep was required, the next day was going to be demanding.
