Rarely do we leave the peninsula, even more rarely do we venture as far as Summerville but when we were invited by our girls at Touchpoint Communication to a new development community with on-premise community garden and full cafe, we had to check it out.
Moreover, our good friend, JA Moore is head chef and creator of several menu items. We were elated to sample JA’s dishes as he was trained at the acclaimed Johnson & Wales before the institution left Charleston.
Chef Moore served elevated cafe options including warm sweet potato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches with lavender jam. The savory, creamy and sweet combination was a southern twist on traditional lunch fare. And to whet our whistle, Chef prepared us Riesling wine cocktails dipped in honey and garnished with mint!
Co-hosting our afternoon was JA’s charming wife, writer and Charleston PR girl, Victoria.
She shared some of her favorite things about Summer’s Corner including the on-location farmer’s market and resident garden full of okra and herbs.
It great to seeing growth in area’s outside of downtown. Summerville is vastly becoming a viable alternative to Charleston living.
