Chef Michael Kramer of Table 301 restaurant group out of Greenville, SC presented this beautiful pork belly with hazelnut crumble. The Oak Table (Columbia, SC) Chef Todd Woods created a heavenly duck pastrami dish served with confit sweet potatoes, cornbread crumble and preserved South Carolina tangerines. Tim Morton of Mercantile and Mash, a restaurant located on the ground floor of the Cigar Factory in Charleston, SC, offered an incredibly tender smoked brisket.

My favorite bite of the afternoon was from chef Joe Palma of Bourbon Steak in Washington, DC. He made this incredible, succulent elk tartar with bonito, caviar and mustard.

    Ok, so I think it’s pretty rude of you to force me to look at all of these delicious pictures before I’ve eaten! I adore a good food festival, we’re pretty good for them up north in Richmond, VA too!
