Duvall Featured in Special Events

Duvall is featured in the latest issue of Special Events Magazine for their article on new, exotic ingredients titled Food for Fetes, New to You. Chef Charlie created a new presentation of his purple potato vichyssoise using black garlic. Black garlic is created by fermenting whole cloves at a high temperature for one month and has a gummi bear like texture with a flavor similar to that of black licorice or balsamic vinegar.

Duvall Décor & Event Design – Goes Green!

Bar Shot BlogGoing green is a lot easier than people think. In partnership with the Charleston CVB, Duvall produced one of the first all green Charleston events for Jamie and Erik Huffman’s rehearsal dinner at Middleton Place. With the support of many local vendors, plants, lighting, paper materials and furniture were all repurposed, recycled or reused.
