Cook It Raw's Public Charleston Event: BBQ Perspectives

New, 2 comments

This Fall, chefs from all over the world will gather in Charleston, South Carolina for the first-ever Cook It Raw event in the US. And, in a first for the chefs summit, they'll hold a public event: BBQ Perspectives, in which over 30 chefs will prepare their personal take on barbecue on October 26. Also: "With a spotlight on Carolina rice, fish, wild game, and the bounty of the local harvest, our chefs will target healthy and whole foods with a focus on vegetable and grains." So really maybe anything goes?

Anyway, Rodney Scott of Scott's BBQ in Hemingway, South Carolina will be the pit master of the shenanigans, and there will be a group of chefs from Charleston, Canada, and abroad cooking all those "healthy and whole foods." These include Sean Brock, Albert Adria, April Bloomfield, Mike Lata, Ben Shewry, Enrique Olvera and more. Tickets are on sale now for $100. Below, a press release.

To celebrate their 6th gathering, Cook It Raw - in collaboration with Food Day 2013 – is hosting its first ever public event, bringing together the producers and chefs of the Cook It Raw Community.

Cook It Raw BBQ Perspectives will feature more than 40 local and internationally acclaimed chefs preparing their interpretation of Lowcountry BBQ. This event will showcase the regional ingredients native to Charleston in a celebration of all things BBQ. With a spotlight on Carolina rice, fish, wild game, and the bounty of the local harvest, our chefs will target healthy and whole foods with a focus on vegetable and grains.

Chef Sean Brock of Husk & McCrady's Restaurants with CIR Community leaders Connie DeSousa of Charcut Roast House (Calgary), J P McMahon of Aniar (Galway) and Matthew Jennings of Farmstead (Rhode Island) will welcome special international and local culinary talents?
