The dish included rye polenta, honey glazed carrots, spiced pecans and of course grouper. As shown above, Brandon and Scott walked the crowd through a step by step process in building this beautiful and tasty meal.

With the goal of continuing to find new ways to keep Charleston green attendees at the Fair learned about different ways to pitch in while enjoying great food, live music, cold beverages and games/activities. The Carolina Green Fair was established in 2008 and upholds its mission to create excitement and enthusiasm for green products, services and technologies available to residents of Charleston with a fun and festive atmosphere for all ages. Sponsors such as Subaru, Savannah Bee Company, New Belgium, Food Waste Forward, Charleston Animal Society, Charleston City Paper, MUSC… and many, many more are what make this event and efforts possible.
