Dear Friends and Followers,

Jordan’s Great Epicurean Escapes will be making a culinary sweep of South Carolina this month and tweeting you updates from our adventure.

We will be staying at four historical properties – Litchfield Plantation, a spectacular retreat set on a 1750’s former rice plantation and dripping with Southern legend; Wentworth Mansion, a splendidly elegant hotel built in the Gilded Age; Abingdon Manor Country Inn, a Greek Revival Bed and Breakfast whose chef/owner holds monthly cooking classes for its guests; and Beaufort Inn, a pink wedding cake Victorian in the low-country fishing village of Beaufort, where I’ll learn from the shrimpers and oystermen, pick my own strawberries from the fruit and vegetable farmers at Dempsey Farms on Saint Helena Island and dine at the Saltus River Grill on sustainable seafood.

There will be kitchen tours and interviews with leading area chefs and visits to restaurants throughout the Palmetto State.  High Cotton, The Lazy Goat and Devereaux’s in Greenville, McCrady’s, Snob, Bistro 213 and Circa 1886 in Charleston.  We’ll also dine at Frank’s on beautiful Pawley’s Island and meet with the owners of Firefly Vodka, Happy Cow Creamery, Anson Mills, the Charleston Tea Plantation, and the Carolina Rice Plantation along the way.

We’re excited to experience the great Southern hospitality of our friends in South Carolina.  Follow us as we make our way along the highways and byways.
