Welcome to Undiscovered Charleston, where acclaimed South Carolina Chef Forrest Parker takes you down the paths less traveled.
“There were 6 in our group for the Undiscovered Charleston Tour. Chef Parker took us around Charleston explaining history, culture, food and architecture… ending up at the quaint Bistro A Vin where he prepared a 4 course lunch in front of us. His selections included the most delicious Gazpacho, Shrimp & Grits, and a chicken and rice dish followed by a berries & cream dessert. The cafe owner paired beautiful wines for each course. It was an incredible day, well worth the money and we look forward to bringing our extended family for another of his educational and delicious tours.”
