The main course was all the rage and like nothing I have ever seen before. Admist the oooh's and ahhhs--- we were presented with a local slow roasted hog and an alligator wrapped in bacon, paired with roasted cauliflower and red eye grits. If you are southern... you know what red eye gravy is, if not then BLESS YOUR HEART!
On to dessert, what could possibly top this meal fit for low country royalty? Slow churnned homemade ice cream made of local white peaches and tomatoes served up in an adorable mason jar.
It was a evening that will live on in the mind of the attendees. The menu was amazing and the night's entertainment was provided by a talented family trio named Volcanoes in the Kitchen
. Their father was the brave gentleman in the top picture who wanted to animate the main course by opening the gator's mouth for the paparazzi.
Expect big things from everyone involved with this evening.
I have been asked by friends, family and coworkers about the meal and how they too can experience it. You can find Jimi on Facebook
and a list of his upcoming events at www.guerillacuisine.com
. You must visit Charleston and of course do the touristy thing, it is Charleston after all, but make sure that you schedule your trip around one of Jimi's dinner experiences. You will love it!
Part two of Magic Road Trips Charleston will feature another Pop Up Dinner inside the city complete with Geechee Cuisine at the popular downtown establishment Proof.
