Two heavyweights in the culinary world will spend an evening celebrating the release of their new cookbook in the Lowcountry. Chefs Daniel Humm and Restaurateur Will Guidara of Eleven Madison Park and NoMad in NYC recently released I Love New York: Ingredients and Recipes which attempts to answer one (not so simple) question: “What is New York cuisine?”

The book also delves into ingredients that are produced by New York farmers located not too far from the outskirts of the city.

For now, however, the chefs will leave their beloved New York and take part in a Southern throwdown at Boone Hall Plantation’s Cotton Dock in Mt. Pleasant on Thurs. June 13. The duo will be hosted by Chef Sean Brock who has invited Rodney Scott to come down from Scott’s BBQ in Hemingway and cook up a whole hog. Brock will also serve some Lowcountry boil to give these guys a true taste of Charleston.

Tickets for the event are still on sale at a cost of $95, this includes drinks, tax, tip, and a copy of their cookbook. To purchase tickets email
