You've seen the Perennial Plate videos about Real Food from around the country. There are still many more. But in addition to our weekly videos, we are going to be releasing some of the pictures from farms and dinners across the country. This first set of pictures take place at McCrady's Restaurant in Charleston South Carolina. We had filmed with Glen Roberts at Anson Mills and wanted to do a dinner that showcased the heirloom grains that are so central to southern cuisine (or at least they used to be). So we teamed up with Sean Brock, the chef at the center of the current Southern food renaissance. Sean and I created an 8 course tasting menu featuring these fine products. Expect a video of this dinner in a month or two, but for now, here are some pictures from the very special event.
