The ultimate Lowcountry showdown will take place this Labor Day weekend pitting celebrated chefs, from local cornerstones, against each other in a battle for the honor of the best shrimp & grits at the inaugural Shrimp & Grits Cook Off.  And lucky you, you’re invited to be a judge.

Chefs from Hall’s, Fleeting Landing, Bull Street Gourmet, Poogan’s Porch, Leaf, Amen St., Henry’s, and Stars, just to name a few, will whip up this Charleston classic and serve it up for the crowd to choose a winner.

Along with plenty of the official dish of the evening, there will be live music, beer, wine, and spirits, all part of the $35 ticket price ($12 for kids under 12).  And to top it off, a portion of the proceeds will go to the The Charleston Animal Society.

See who will take home the bragging rites and join the festivities this weekend under the Charleston Visitor’s Center Bus Shed, downtown on Saturday, August 30th from 7pm – 10pm.  Click here to purchase tickets in advance.

Looking to stir up your own award-winning shrimp & grits in a gourmet kitchen?  Have a look at 9 2nd Avenue in the Isle of Palms and schedule a private showing of this jaw-dropping home, chef’s kitchen included.
