Annual Winthrop Roundtable Explores the Roots of Southern Cooking

College of Charleston, Events, Friends of the Library, In the News, Lecture, Performance, Winthrop Roundtable / Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

On Tuesday, March 13, the Friends of the Library welcomed Executive Chef Sean Brock and Professor David Shields to the Winthrop Roundtable. After a delightful dinner of Bisque a la Creole, Fresh Striped Bass, and Strawberry Cornmeal Cake, Brock and Shields discussed the restoration and preservation of one of the great cuisines of America: the South Carolina Lowcountry cuisine. The evening’s menu was adapted from an original 18th century cookbook and many of the ingredients used were locally sourced. Click here to view a video from the evening!
