I recently visited Charleston for the first time, and it was a trip I will never forget. I can sum it up in two short words: culinary bliss.
Much like Raleigh, Charleston has turned into a culinary destination for chefs and foodies, alike. My favorite concept of the trip: farm to table. If you’re not familiar with this term, it refers to the idea that food that’s grown locally should be consumed locally.
Husk Restaurant is a delicious example of a restaurant that has taken the whole farm to table thing to heart. Immediately inside the front door is a blackboard that lists each of the daily ingredients and from where they came, be it S.C. or a nearby state. I was super stoked to even see a few North Carolina farms on the list!
And the fun didn’t stop there. Brunch was absolutely amazing. I enjoyed my brioche French toast with Ambrose Farms Strawberry Jam, powdered sugar and maple syrup (Va.), but it was Josh’s dish that took the prize. He ordered wood-fired pork belly “Monte Cristo,” with buttermilk cheddar (Tenn.), fried farm egg, Surry sausage and confit potato hash.
Hungry yet? I’d love to hear about your favorite farm-to-table restaurants. Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section.

Josie–that french toast sounds amazing! My cruise left from Charleston and I wish I could have stayed and had some lunch in town. So many beautiful and delicious restaurants to chose from!
Josie! Husk is one of my Dad’s FAVORITE places in Charleston! There are so many wonderful places down there, I guess you will just have to go back a few more times!
