If you’re like so many Americans who find themselves holed up in their homes with virtually no option but to fix their own meals, this could be a great opportunity to reassess your eating habits and adopt a healthier diet.
Bestselling novelist and cookbook author PAT CONROY discovers a world class Italian restaurant on a corner in downtown Beaufort. When Pat Conroy called to ask if he could write a review of his favorite local restaurant for Lowcountry Weekly, we were honored and thrilled. Pat tells us this is the first restaurant review he’s ever written. We think the kid has a bright future ahead of him. – Editor The best restaurant in my history in Beaufort opened quietly in January at the corner of Carteret and Craven streets. It is called Griffin Market, which makes it the worst named Italian restaurant I’ve ever heard of in my life. Its food is glorious and it is, by a long shot, the best Italian food ever served in South Carolina. The chef is the inimitable Laura Bonini and she received her classical training at Galileo’s in Washington, DC.
On September 10, Beaufort’s local farmers, food artisans and area chefs will join together to create a farm-to-table supper with a twist. “The Farmer’s Table” will feature several of Beaufort’s finest chefs preparing locally sourced food in support of the Lowcountry Food Bank’s Growing Food Locally program. The festivities begin with small bites, bluegrass music and a tour of Habersham Farms, followed by a three-course collaborative supper coordinated by Plums Inc. Executive Chef Jim Spratling. The evening’s goal is to raise $15,000 through ticket sales and sponsorship donations, which will provide 50,000 pounds of fresh, local produce to local families, children and elderly in Beaufort County.
