This weekend was the 9th annual Charleston Wine & Food Festival, and a cold and soggy start to the weekend was nothing a little (a lot) of bourbon couldn't fix. Highlights included Cleveland chef Jonathon Sawyer's Mortadella Double Down, the Waffle House Smack Down (pictured above) which Houston chef Chris Shepherd won, copious quantities of bourbon and oysters, and, by the end of the weekend, lots of glorious sunshine. Head over to Eater Charleston for lots of pictures and all the highlights.
