Gourmet History Tour

A must do if visiting Charleston! Walking food history tour was informative and helped set the stage for our amazing meal prepared by Chef Forrest Parker. We had an abundance of food with wine pairings. At the end, recipes to recreate at home. A plus, for me, was the insistence from Chef to reach out if we had any questions. We spent a month on the road and this was one of the highlights of our trip!

Highly recommend this tour especially for people who have been to Charleston before and done regular tours. This one truly includes undiscovered areas and information. Chef Forrest Parker was entertaining, knowledgable and friendly. The food was delicious and the wine was matched well with each offering.

Oh. My. Gosh!! The best tour I have ever been on! He gave a lot of information with his humor. He calls it “Dad” humor but I think was better :) We had a group of three generations and all ages said was fantastic! And the FOOD was soooo good! My daughter now has a new favorite recipe she wants for her birthday dinner. Chef Forrest offered me any help he could with finding the groceries or with making it, when the time comes. It is a quaint bistro/bar where the magic happens and the wine was great! Can’t say enough, except, you should go on this tour!

What a great experience! Chef is SO knowledgable and weaves his culinary expertise into the architectural history tour. The meal he prepared was amazing! I am still dreaming of the shrimp and grits - and all the dishes prepared. If you like history - AND food & wine, this is the tour for you.

It is easy to tell when someone is right in their lane. Chef Forrest Parker nailed it! His passion shone through in his entertaining tour and his tasty cooking demonstration. I will take this tour whenever I am in Charleston for Chef Parker’s “dad jokes”, entertaining info about the rich culinary history of Charleston and easily some of the best food I’ve ever tasted during his demonstration!!! I cannot stress this enough - take this tour!!!
