Southern Living is joining the Charleston Restaurant Association to present the Southern Living Taste of Charleston 2011 in Charleston, South Carolina.
For the first time this year, the main event expands from one day to two. It will be held at Boone Hall Plantation in nearby Mt. Pleasant on October 8 and 9, 2011.
This celebration of Lowcountry cuisine will feature approximately 50 of Charleston’s top restaurants showcasing samples of their signature dishes, as well as Southern Living editor appearances, editorial-inspired vignettes, demonstrations, giveaways and more.
“Charleston has always been a quintessential Southern city, and a favorite of our readers,” said Southern Living publisher Rich Smyth. “We’re thrilled to partner with the Charleston Restaurant Association to host this great event that celebrates world-class Southern food, music, art and culture.”
"We cannot think of a better partner than Southern Living to help the CRA grow our 30-year-old festival and take it to the next level. We share tremendous synergies of Southern heritage, food, culture and best of all — the love of Charleston, SC,” said Michael Saboe, President of the Charleston Restaurant Association.
