We like to stay close to our sources of food. I believe the trendy word for that is "locavores". Thing is... even though our menu is constantly changing, one mainstay is a belief in an ingredient's ability to speak for itself. The farther you are from the ingredient's soil, the more difficult that becomes. Period. It's the difference between saying "Look at this beautiful thing" and "Look at what I did". Perhaps a marriage of the two is the aim, the former being the most important.
Perfect example... our Iberico Lardo with Asian Pears and Arkansas Black Apples. Simple, close to home. Look at this beautiful thing.

For those of you that have not yet experienced a Burger at the Larder, we'd like to invite you into the loop.
The Burger has popped on and off of our menu here at the Larder for some time, and it's always a hot commodity. In order to leave our menu options open and adventurous, we have decided to make it a weekly special. Every Wednesday beginning at 5:00, our decadent Burger will become available for dine-in guests (no take-out here, this is a very serious Burger) while supplies last.
The details may change, but you're going to get Two Patties on Brioche with Nueske's Bacon and Mornay. Last week it was served with Beer Mustard and a Farm Egg. Next week will have another surprise under it's bun!

The BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival®’s third annual Ultimate Critics Dinner presented by Limehouse Produce took place last night at the lovely at Old Towne Creek County Park in West Ashley.
Selected by a panel of food critics and writers by secret ballot, Josh joined chefs Jeremiah Bacon (The Macintosh), Mike Lata (F.I.G.), Sean Brock (McCrady’s and Husk), Michelle Weaver (Charleston Grill), and Frank Lee (Slightly North of Broad) alongside pastry chef Emily Cookson (Charleston Grill). With Patrick Emerson of Maverick Southern Kitchens leading a team of Sommeliers and Mickey Bakst of Charleston Grill hosting, guests were invited for a first look at the historic 55-acre property previously known as Ashem Farm.
Our Assistant Manager served the event and was able to snap a few discreet photos throughout, so we thought we'd share them with you!
