Kick Off the Holidays with Taste of the Season

Author: Special to CH2

The Lowcountry’s much-anticipated annual holiday culinary tradition has a new venue this year. The Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce will present Taste of the Season Under the Stars on Nov. 17, tented on the green at the Country Club of Hilton Head. Under the luxurious tent, attendees can sample dishes from a variety of the Lowcountry’s best restaurants.

With over 200 restaurants across the Lowcountry, Taste of the Season is one of the premier places where a variety of the area’s best cuisine and the talents of world-class chefs are on display. Each participating restaurant will offer a unique culinary experience and signature menu items; between seafood, Southern soul food and creative concoctions, there will be something to please every palate.

The red carpet rolls out for the VIP Experience. Ticket holders will experience a luxe private tent with exclusive catering, open bar until 7 p.m., lounge seating, and preferred parking, plus the perks of the general admission ticket.

Each year, winners of Taste of the Season are chosen by the hundreds who attend the event and cast their ballot for their favorite dishes. Awards are presented to the restaurants serving the most popular dishes. Last year, the People’s Choice Award for Best Cuisine went to Ela’s Blu Water Grille for its pan seared diver scallops over crab risotto with truffle cream sauce and crispy prosciutto. The runner-up was Jane Bistro and Bar’s Carolina shrimp & grits.

While food is the focus, attendees are also able to browse the silent auction, which includes getaways, works of art, golf packages and more. Last year, lucky bidders won holiday gifts such as a golf trip to Ireland, clubhouse badges to the RBC Heritage presented by Boeing, roundtrip tickets on JetBlue, and gift cards to the area’s finest restaurants and experiences.

DJ Crush will provide the entertainment for the evening. All food for the evening is included in the ticket price. Taste of the Season is sponsored by Presenting Sponsor Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport and Supporting Sponsor LOCAL Life.
