If you haven't been, the Music to your Mouth festival down at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton is most definitely worth a trip. The drive along the Carolina coast is glorious, the vibe is laid back, and the food and wine are from some of the best chefs and winemakers around. A contingent of our local guys go there every year, stay in the village, and basically have a blast relaxing and cooking.
Unfortunately, tickets have long sold out. If you want to go, your last chance is to beg some well-connected F&B insider for an extra pair of tickets or head to Facebook and like the Music to Your Mouth page and indicate which two chefs you'd like to get on stage with. Based on last year's, I'd say it has to be Mike Lata and Sean Brock, who spent their demo playing pranks on each other.
Hurry up, too, cause the contest ends tomorrow and winner will be announced on Oct. 29. The event is Saturday, Nov. 17 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
