'Cooking with Friends' quickly becoming a must-attend on the culinary adventure of Georgetown, South Carolina
If you're a foodie in Georgetown, South Carolina, you know about the culinary adventure it has to offer. But, do you know about "Cooking with Friends" and why it's the must-attend culinary event?
Since the beginning of this year, Friendship Place has been holding the "fun, relaxed" dining experience at Get Carried Away's Cypress Room, space graciously donated by owners Brian and Sassy Carragher Henry. Proceeds go to helping the nonprofit develop and nurture programs aimed at decreasing poverty in our area.
What's fun about Cooking with Friends is seeing local chefs preparing dishes and describing how they can prepare those dishes themselves, with a few secrets withheld. More, these same chefs are laid back, laughing at times, and letting loose. It's not the high-pressured kitchen atmosphere they're accustomed to.
From former South Carolina Chef Ambassador Adam Kirby to Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association's 2019 Chef of the Year Danny Smith, great culinary talent has graced the Cypress Room's kitchen to provide divine dishes benefiting a great and worthy cause.
This experience featured renown chefs Penny and Brian Hayes from the DeBordieu Club. Also helping was their sous chef Akeem Wilson.
Penny's She Crab Sipper was more than a sip - and so divine. It was followed by Braised Short Ribs, Autumn Vegetable Slaw, Clemson Blue Cheese and Carolina Sweet Potatoes, and Yankee Cornbread. And, yes, they are from up north, but it's not why the cornbread is called Yankee. And Just when attendees thought it couldn't get any better the evening ended with Beignets with a Charleston Bourbon Drizzle.
