The school district is holding a career fair today at Laing Middle. Celebuchef Tyler Florence, an upstate native and Johnson & Wales grad, was scheduled to make soup for the school.

Florence lives in San Francisco these days, but he’s still got a Lowcountry connection. His son lives here and attends Laing.

Unfortunately, he had to cancel, so we won’t be able to stalk the famous foodie around town tonight. Boo.
