gardens in bloom

I pursued the holy grail of dining in the Holy City recently.  My meal began on the porch of a grand Southern home in historic Charleston, SC overlooking a garden of heirloom blooms cultivated on the property.  My meal began with a hand-propagated, rare tomato varietal and a gorgeous regional wine fermented from heirloom grapes.  Even blind folded, I couldn’t have expected to be anywhere other than one of the sparkling jewel cities of the culinary culture to be experienced only in the South.  The sense of place amplifies the food experience just as the sense of place in this one-of-a-kind Southern gallery exalts every work found within.  Claim your spot now…
