Chef Adam Kirby. Chef Danny Smith. Chef Paul Delatte. They've done it. Who will be next?
I'm talking about Cooking with Friends, a monthly event featuring a local chef cooking for guests at Get Carried Away's Cypress Room.
The setting has an intimate feel, but business casual is fitting. The tastes, however, are mind blowing.
The event benefits Friendship Place, a Christian organization working to provide a hand-up for people to meet their basic needs. For more than 19 years, they have fed the hungry, sheltered the homeless and worked to creatively and cost-effectively meet the unmet needs of the citizens of Georgetown county.
And the people love the chef offering. All three events so far have sold out in advance.
Here's a little more on Cooking with Friends.
Nothing brings a community together like cooking. Whether you’re watching, preparing, or enjoying the delicious end result, cooking is something that’s done best with friends. Enjoy old and new friends in a fun, relaxed setting, learning how to create dishes from top local chefs at The Cypress Room at Get Carried Away.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association will host its 13th Annual Trio Dinner on Monday, April 1, 2019, at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel, the host sponsor. It will start at 6:30 p.m.
The Trio Dinner is the culmination of a culinary arts mentorship program that pairs a professional chef with two students, one in high school and one in college. Each trio will showcase its unique cuisine at the Trio Dinner. Along with excellent fare, the event includes hors d’oeuvres by Grand Strand Provisions, a cocktail bar, live entertainment with U-N-I Jazz and a silent auction benefiting hospitality educational programming.
High school students participating in the mentorship program are from the Academy for Technology and Academics. This magnet school receives students from throughout Horry County, who have an opportunity to sample hospitality courses including culinary arts in the middle and early high school years. The college students completing the trio are from the International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach at Horry-Georgetown Technical College.
The Trio Dinner’s purpose is to support and promote the hospitality industry’s culinary arts profession and to give each student real-world experience in creating an original dish with the guidance of an executive chef. This event is very important to the Grand Strand culinary arts programs. A portion of the proceeds of the event go to MBAHA scholarship funds for Hospitality and Culinary education in our local institutions.
In addition to creating wonderful dishes and working with students, chefs will have the opportunity to enter one dish to be judged for the “Best Dish” and “People’s Choice” awards. Knowing chefs are as competitive as they are creative, this allows participating chefs to show off their skills and be recognized for it. We will have a combination of celebrity chef judges and local American Culinary Federation judges for the event.
