Taste of the Season: The culinary event of the year

Author: Special to CH2

The Lowcountry culinary scene has become known for the great chefs that define it with their innovative cuisine. With more than 250 restaurants, the area’s scene has never been hotter, and nowhere is this more evident than at Taste of the Season, the Lowcountry’s culinary event of the year!

Celebrate award-winning cuisine from more than 35 of the area’s top chefs at the 24th annual Taste of the Season, presented by the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce. From haute cuisine to Lowcountry classics, there’s something to please every palate as Lowcountry chefs showcase their culinary skills on Friday, November 22, at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort and Spa from 6-9 p.m.

Taste of the Season features well-known favorites, from SERG Group restaurants like WiseGuys to island icons such as Alexander’s, The Old Oyster Factory, and Hudson’s Seafood House on the Docks—a truly mouth-watering sampling of the area’s culinary landscape!

Great chefs will tell you that sharing great food is what the holidays are all about. “The holiday season creates special opportunities to showcase regional flavors and infuse exciting seasonal tastes with a bit of traditional twists,” said Chef Greg Tucker of WiseGuys.

Culinary connoisseurs will once again cast their votes as our top chefs compete for “Best Cuisine.” Last year’s award went to Hugo’s Seafood and Steakhouse for their Surf n’ Turf Lollipops, lobster wontons, and Hawaiian-seared filet mignon with celeriac puree, parsnip chips, and soy vinaigrette. “Taste of the Season is our favorite event,” Hugo’s Brandon Arrieta said. “It allows guests and fellow chefs to experience the area’s best cuisine.”

Kick-off your holidays with gourmet grandeur and get a head start on holiday shopping with fabulous silent auction items, featuring great getaways and gift items just in time for the season. It’s always a sell-out!

Tickets on sale now at, chamber headquarters and the chamber’s Bluffton office.
