My Top 5 Bites in Charleston, South Carolina (described in 3 words)!

My husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary this year by road tripping around Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina. With only one night in Savannah, we didn’t have too many opportunities to eat, but our favorite was dinner at the historic Olde Pink House. Along backroads we found local breweries, beach shacks serving Lowcountry cuisine, and much more. This list is dedicated to all the rich, sumptuous Southern food we savored in the lovely city of Charleston — and trust me, it was difficult narrowing it down to only five dishes!

PHOTO GALLERY: SOBEWFF Southern Kitchen Brunch

The past two years we’ve enjoyed the all-day gluttony of the SOBEWFF Grand Tasting Village. But this year we decided to switch things up and opted to spend Sunday morning with country queen Trisha Yearwood at the Loews Miami Beach hotel. We not only filled up on delish southern eats and bourbon Bloody Marys, but we also got to watch the Grammy Award-winning singer perform a few songs! Here are our favorite bites of the day.
