The Charleston Magazine Recipe Contest & Cook-off
Last summer, we asked for entries to the inaugural Charleston Cooks Recipe Contest, and readers responded in droves. Charleston food editor Marion Sullivan and Charleston Cooks!’ Danielle Wexler culled the best, and the Culinary Institute of Charleston fired up its stoves for a live cook-off. After four 30-minute rounds of head-to-head competition, judges Marion Sullivan, Maverick Southern Kitchens’ David Marconi, and award-winning cookbook author Nathalie Dupree deliberated on the dishes’ use of local ingredients, originality, preparation, presentation, and taste.
