What is Southern Cuisine? Have you ever experienced Southern Hospitality? Can you get more locally Southern than the farm up the road? On this tour, we sample and sip our way through some of Uptown Charlotte’s best representations of the local South. Chefs and restaurant owners will explain the influence of Southern Heritage in their cuisine & beverage menus. Many of their recipes are Southern family traditions, others are created by what a local farm can provide that week, and some are a modern twist on Southern cuisine. We will get a taste of craft beers & food products made right here in the South and stroll along city streets by some great examples of Charlotte’s historical past.
Price: $60 per person
