Chef Ken Vedrinski – Trattoria Lucca & Coda del Pesce – Charleston, SC & a Recipe for Espresso Gelato


Passion. To be passionate about what you do is reflected in your work, your outlook on life, and if you are a chef, in your food. Food created out of passion is good food and when many people (including other chefs) in Charleston, South Carolina are seeking really good food, they book a table at Trattoria Lucca. When you think of Charleston dining, the area between King Street and East Bay offers some of the finest restaurants in the Untied States. A few years ago we were directed off the usual path to dine with Chef Ken Vedrinski in an area of town that was very unfamiliar.
