Carolina on My Mind: A #CHSWFF Primer

For those of you going to the Charleston Wine and Food Festival next week (and for those of us turning green with envy because we can't--like myself and others who are holding down the fort at the SFA World Headquarters), you've probably got a little Carolina on your mind. To prepare ourselves for next week's festivities, we thought we might share with you some of our favorite pieces on the great state of South Carolina. If we can't be there in person, we can still be there in spirit...and twitter. The official hashtag for the festival is #chswff.

To whet our appetites for Charleston before the big event, let us take you to Bertha's Kitchen. Baked chicken, fried pork chops, barbecued pigs feet, cabbage, okra soup, red rice, and mac and cheese are just a few of the choices. The daily lunch special is just $4, and the place is managed by Bertha's three daughters. Arrive early, before the line wraps out the front door.
