Re: “Assessing Charleston's culinary tours to find the best entertainment for your summer guests

The ice cream at Lowcountry Olive Oil is provided to taste balsamic vinegars, the brownies were made with our blood orange olive oil. What we provide for sampling changes weekly. We are on the tour because of 1. the historical significance of our building 2. the history of olive oil in South Carolina 3. The fact that we are the only olive oil company in South Carolina that infuses olive oils and vinegars and doesn't purchase them en masse from one distributor. We also work closely with regional olive farms.

Re: “Dîner en Blanc is coming to Charleston

Of FFS, I knew it was just a matter of time until this trendstar crap came to Charleston. Total wankerfest to be avoided at all costs. I've seen it in two other cities (one in EU, one in Asia) and it's a pretentious monstrosity.

Re: “Dîner en Blanc is coming to Charleston

Mat is absolutely 100 percent beyond any shadow of a doubt correct - fucked up to the max. They do this crap in NYC once a year and every idiot from NJ comes in for it. Jesus Christ what are you people trying to do here? What if the idiots from NJ come down for this? Totalement baisée!!

Re: “What do chefs, coffee, and Coolio have in common?

Got my 10 in my hand and a gleam in my eye
I'm a loc'd out gangsta set trippin' banger
And my homies is down so don't arouse my anger, fool
Come on down to the alley and purchase my cookbook you tool
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise.
I would def pay $25.00 to hear him sing gangsta's paradise or the Keenan & Kel song - Aw, here it goes - a classic. I actually like a lot of his older stuff...even without a cookbook thrown in. Coolio is no Foolio. Hahahaha sorry had to say it. I'm going to this and will get a friend to purchase tickets.
Also a HUGE congrats on the baby Kins. I am sooo happy for you. You know why? Misery loves company and I'm miserable. Trust me on this one, they are real hard to get rid of later. Mine are still asking for money and I am forced to spend the summer with the little beggars in Spain and France, wheedling little freeloaders.

Re: “What do chefs, coffee, and Coolio have in common?

Ima Oldman, I count four closures during that same time period — Union Provisions, Social, Bocci's, and Menkoi (which has since reopened).

Congratulations on reproducing, Kinsey Gidick. I cannot wait to read your future writings from the super unique perspective of being a mom. Although you may get involved in a copyright battle with Alison Piepmeier. I hope you are saving some money for your legal costs. Remember: **Sink on your cellphone. Although I'm not sure he does copyright law. But I'm sure he could give you a great referral.

Re: “Chef Andy Henderson leaving Edmund's Oast for life as a farmer

Brew - when I get back lets go to E/O, have beers and dessert (both at the same time) and make fun of all the sour grape H8ters. They do not want any of that wishing people luck business from anybody. No luck for anyone just sour grapes.

Re: “Saint Alban to move across the street

I'm so sad to hear this. St Alban is one of the most comfortable, well-designed and outfitted coffee/breakfast stops in town. And they even have parking! (in the shade!) The place always seems packed to me, but with enough room to spread out, which is nice! The coffee is excellent as are all of the baked goods and breakfast sandwiches. I'm sure those things will be just as good across the street--but damn! I hate to lose that shady parking!

Best of luck to you, Andy. You, and your cooking, will be greatly missed.

Re: “The Westendorff restaurant is now open

there's also a beautiful event space upstairs and a luxury apartment on the third floor, though I'm confused as to why their build out cost would be of concern to anyone other than the owners.

Re: “Chef Andy Henderson leaving Edmund's Oast for life as a farmer

I am sorry to see them go but super excited for them at the same time. Stepping back from the Kitchen into life is a really good experience all of the time ( trust me, I should of done it a lot sooner). Emily will step in so good news for my dessert desires right there and I am sure Reid can step right up. We wish the best of everything to these two and I can not help but be a little (well, okay...a lot) envious of a Sonoma Farm Life.
