Virtual Tasting Party
We are honored to be on Hanna Raskin
personal list of favorites
food editor and chief critic with Post and Courier
We are participating Monday the 22nd.
It’s exceedingly bad form to talk about a party that not everyone in earshot is attending.
Each evening conversation features roughly half of the producers
Still, even if you haven’t already registered for one or both of the events, that doesn’t mean you can’t experience at least some of the fun. You have two great options for supporting Charleston area food artisans.
First, we’re offering $10 viewing tickets for the virtual get-togethers. As the name suggests, those tickets don’t come with food samples, but you can tune in to learn more about local food producers and what they’re making.
(Plus, all proceeds from the parties are going to Pay It Forward Charleston, a nonprofit offering emergency assistance to hospitality workers, so you know in advance that it’s money well spent.)
Second, if you’re more interested in the comestibles than the expert commentary, you can put together your own private tasting party with the help of this list.
Charleston Artisan Cheesehouse
Representative product: Battery Park Bloomy-Rind Cheese
Background: Heather and Pete Holmes were working in Manhattan retail and fashion prior to purchasing Charleston Artisan Cheesehouse in 2014; they make all of their cheese with Hickory Hill Milk from Edgefield.
Claim to fame: Culture, a glossy magazine devoted to cheese, described Charleston Artisan Cheesehouse’s Charleston Caviar, a pimento-spiced cream cheese, as “fluffy as a cloud.”
