Duvall has been working with Grow Food Carolina to source the freshest produce for our events. These beautiful patty pan squash were cut off the vine this morning and delivered to our kitchen this afternoon. They’ll be sizzling in the pan in a few hours and on a dinner plate tonight.
Summer squash are in full bloom in Charleston and when we’re dealing with the freshest local ingredients, we like to make sure the flavor shines. Tonight, we’ll be serving sauteed local summer squash with roasted spring onion, shaved garlic and extra virgin olive oil.
