Kim in Charleston

Greetings from Charleston, S.C.! I am here for the next few days attending a food and drink extravaganza with the Southern Foodways Alliance. For the past eight years, food writers, academics, historians and chefs have been gathering in a different part of the south to learn about the culinary traditions and foodways that make it unique. I just got in last night, already with a wonderful dinner under my belt at F.I.G. and am on my way out the door for a day of adventures with my colleagues. Stay tuned for a report on Monday.

One last note: Half my flight down here was filled with firefighters who are in town to pay their respects to the nine firefighters killed in a massive blaze earlier this week. The funeral and city-wide procession begin in just a few hours.

Have a mindful and delicious weekend.

Hi Kim - Hope all is well! If you have any free time during the conference, check out McCrady's.

You must -- MUST -- wander over to Shem Creek (an area, not far off from Charleston) to get broiled shrimp at "The Wreck of the Richard and Charlene", a/k/a "The Wreck". Almost impossible to find; no sign on the outside; the best broiled shrimp there is.

I'm sure folks have told you to check out S.N.O.B. -- but The Wreck is worth going off the beaten track.

Also, try Andolini's pizza. Pretty darned good for south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Kim, you must go to the Peninsula Grill, located inside the Planter's Inn. They have out of this world food!
