South Carolina is known for its food, and now you can be a part of it. We grow some pretty great ingredients here in our backyard too: peaches, pecans, gold rice and peanuts, not to mention Beaufort area oysters, shrimp, crabs just to name a few. Southern food tastes great, and when it comes to original cuisine, South Carolina leads the way! But its not just our ingredients we love, it is our recipes too, benne seed wafers, BBQ, shrimp and grits, fried chicken, hush puppies, corn bread, oyster roasts and all kinds of Low County food favorites.
The area around Beaufort is a gastronomic heaven. Have you got any heirloom family recipes that you can’t wait to break out? Are you a secret chef who has been cooking up a storm in your apartment in Ridgeland, SC. Well if you like cooking with fresh native South Carolina ingredients, here is your opportunity for your claim to fame.
The Lee Brothers are at it again. This time it’s the Lee Brother Your Holiday search for South Carolina’s favorite original holiday recipe. The recipe needs to showcase at least one Certified South Carolina grown ingredient.
You can submit one original recipe per day online at facebook.com/LeeBrotherYour Holiday now through Nov. 30 for a chance to have your favorite recipe printed and displayed in grocery stores across the state. You’ll also get to meet the Lee Brothers and prepare a meal with them.
Submissions in these categories: entrees, sides, appetizers, desserts and baked goods. Matt and Ted Lee will pick the finalists.
Good luck, we hope a “chef” from Auston Chase wins and invites us over for dinner.
