"Iron Chef" Competitions Can Also Feature Mixologists

Hot off their Iron Chef America battles on the Food Network, The Modern Mixologist, aka Tony Abou-Ganim, and Charlotte Voisey reunited to host the second annual BB&T Charleston Wine + Food® Iron Mixologist Competition at our Palmer Campus amphitheater. Four of Charleston’s finest bartenders battled through three rounds of cocktail warfare in a series of challenges demanding creativity, speed, quick thinking, and composure behind the bar. A top shelf judging panel and a series of whimsical secret ingredients kept each contender on their toes as they competed for the ultimate title of Iron Mixologist Charleston.

Décor at the Door

The theme for Summerville's Pinewood Preparatory School Auction Gala was Great Gatsby-Style. They keyed the décor at the door with this vintage ragtop. It also served as an effective backdrop for photos.

Need a creative program for your group? We can deliver!

When the Chamber of Commerce wanted a program for the state's Congressional Delegates, we cooked up  Farm to Table demonstration for them. Jim Martin, of Compost in My Shoes, brought in vegetables and Chef David Vagasky, Chef Instructor of the Culinary Institute of Charleston, created dishes with them. They both gave a great talk - and followed with a tasting. We used the demonstration kitchen at our Palmer Campus. Bar chair seating around the counter simulated a chef's table. For a larger group, there is amphitheater seating.
