9:30 Historic Culinary Tour of Charleston

Exploring a city’s cuisine isn’t a new idea. For decades, cooking schools in culinary centers like Paris and New Orleans have indoctrinated visitors into their particular styles with certificates for gourmands and chefs. But a newly flavorful outing, the food-tasting expedition, is rising faster than a flawless soufflé.

The concept: through local dishes and restaurants, guests come to better understand a city’s culture, roots, and development. And on a food-tasting tour everyone can succeed at the same skill: eating!

This “tastebuds-on” excursion is dedicated to savoring the flavors of Charleston. The tour is a culinary march through the streets of this historic port city, with destinations that vary season by season. Customary stops include restaurants, bakeries, and confectionery shops.

Through this “boutique banqueting,” guests will learn about the culinary contributions made by Native Americans, European settlers, and enslaved Africans that have fused into what today is lovingly referred to as Lowcountry cuisine.
