Why would they want to go through all the trouble just to lose their investment?

Re: “Newest DHEC regulations could mean the butcher block for some of the region's most acclaimed charcuterie

Yes Craig Deihl is a great chef, local star and all-around "nice guy", it's great that he is "chef at Cypress and Artisan Meat Share and a founding member of the Butcher's Guild," but if he's a superstar and can't pass regulations that other locals have been able to accomplish in the course of almost a year it seems that he has some deficiencies the others don't or he's a whining prima-dona, or the victim of well-meaning but clueless sycophants writing a supportive column.

Re: “Newest DHEC regulations could mean the butcher block for some of the region's most acclaimed charcuterie

Too bad CP didn't come talk to us. We jumped through the hoops and got our HACCP plans together. It took us 8 months of hurry-up-and-wait back and forth with Columbia, laboratory product assessments to verify our methodology was sound, and HACCP training seminars for the management and staff. The end result is fantastic artisnal products that we guarantee won't kill you.
It's not just about filling in the paperwork, it's about advanced understanding of the microbiology and physical and chemical controls involved.
We're now working towards wholesale and hope to be able to produce custom products for chefs who can't put the time and treasure into developing their own plans.

Re: “After 37 years, Norm's has closed making way for Smith Street Pizza

I went into Norm's after I got off work at Roper hospital on their last night. They told me they were closing for renovations that they do every decade. Sounds like part of the process of selling the place was a hush, hush policy. I feel lucky to have eaten there one last time. Thank you to the family for the last seven years that I was able to pull through for good food and conversation. I hope ya'll finally get to do what you have wanted to do for a very long time. Peace be with you.

Re: “Froufrou white party Dîner en Blanc returns to Charleston

Tres prtentieux, trs idiote! They blocked off Lincoln Center in NYC one year when I had a appointment there in 2012. Boy oh boy, was I royally pissed off. They do this in Madrid too when I am there. Can y'all say paintball rampage? Now that would be great performance ART. Who judges if the food in your picnic basket is comprised of "fine food". What would happen if you pulled out paper plates, fried bologna sandwiches, palmetto cheese with Ritz crackers and moon pies (Chucktown fine dining)? Would you be asked to leave? Would your neighboring diners blow the whistle and point you out? If this benefited a charity like the White Tie & Tiara Ball then Bravo, but it doesn't. Sorry Natty I love ya and I hope you are going to get paid well (deservedly so), but this event is just too white and too silly even for me.

Re: “During 'A Day Without Immigrants' strike, we revisit our chat with FIG's Lucy Becerra

Very nice profile of Lucy and her successes in the U.S... Wonderful story. I hope FIG and other local restaurants who have hired legal immigrants are paying them fair and equal wages as compared to non-immigrant employees witb similar experience (19 years, wow!) so hard workers like Lucy can someday visit her family so far away. Also, to keep perspectives balanced, the enhanced security of our US/Mexican borders is NOT intended to prohibit LEGAL immigration...It's to control/stop 'ILLEGAL' immigration/drug trafficking, etc. There is a difference. Not surprised that restaurants are staying open on this one.

Re: “Froufrou white party Dîner en Blanc returns to Charleston

oh how I love going to parties that I don't know where they are until the last minute... that have a very strict dress code of white only, and that require me to bring all my own food ,drink , utensils and even table and table cloth.And when I am forced to only drink champagne or wine when I actually would perfer beer, well that just makes it that much more interesting and keeps out the riff raff. It makes it even more fun when held outdoors and I am required to attend even if it's pouring rain. and when it's restricted to only the same guests from The prior-year....well I love the diversity that comes from that. and since everything is required to be white, I can only assume that applies to the door policy as well.oh what fun... I can't wait to attend.

oh wait ...I hate trendy, self-absorbed crap like this.

it's amazing what bored people will do in the name of fun.

Pass.

Another piece of what made Charleston 'Charleston' has been lost. Bummer.

Re: “After 37 years, Norm's has closed making way for Smith Street Pizza

Been going there since '86 and was sadly disappointed when we went down there in January and found out about the change. Wish I would have made it down there one more time for the good stuff; before it happened. There was no better pizza sauce in all of Charleston. The menu variety also made it a great place to go for most anything you wanted. We live in North Charleston; but would make the trip because it was so worth it.
