Chef Instructor Kelly Wilson Kicks Off CIC's Charleston Wine + Food Festival Activity!

CIC Baking & Pastry Chef Instructor Kelly Wilson and local Stars restaurant chef Nathan Thurston joined a fantastic lineup of national chefs for the Festival's major fundraising event. Traveling to Charleston were Nashville's Tyler Brown, Atlanta's Linton Hopkins, Louisville's Michael Paley, Atlanta's Anne Quatrano, and Chapel Hill's Bill Smith. The goal was to raise money via live and silent auctions for Mickey Bakst's Feed the Need and Lowcountry Local First's Farm Incubator Program.  

Following the theme of celebrating local, Chef Wilson prepared a trilogy of divine Southern bite-size desserts, which were passed on colorful LE CREUSET serving platters: dark chocolate fudge with candied pecans, 'nana pudding macarons, and mini Meyer lemon cheesecakes made with juice and rind from Meyer lemons picked off of Sidi Limehouse's trees.  http://charlestonwineandfood.com/
