There are plenty of decadent delights in coastal South Carolina on the way to Edisto Island. You can pick up fresh coffee and cornmeal donuts at Geechee Boy Market & Mill, where you might just catch Greg Johnsman himself giving a demo on one of his antique grist mills. At George & Pink’s vegetable stand, you can pick up fresh corn, tomatoes, and boiled peanuts. Pig out on fried chicken at Po’ Pigs Bo-B-Q and chat up proprietor Robert “Bobo” Lee himself, a gentle giant who happens to be the half-brother of South Carolina’s famous artist Jasper Johns.
Chef José Gutierrez of River Oaks Restaurant in Memphis wowed us when we ate our way through the city for the May 2014 issue, and now he’s done it again, with a shrimp tartine that is quickly becoming a lunch favorite for these dog days.
