One of Charleston’s most acclaimed and accomplished chefs, Ken Vedrinski, has expanded his restaurant offerings with his newest venture, Coda del Pesce (Italian for “tail of the fish”). The 70+ seat contemporary Italian influenced restaurants showcases the area’s most untapped asset - the ocean and the view and menu hightlight this incredible bounty.
CHARLESTON, SC—July 22, 2013—Louisville based Chef Edward Lee returns to Charleston on August 29 and 30 for a special two day celebration of the recent launch of his new cookbook Smoke & Pickles. During his visit he will participate in a special L ’Atelier Guest Chef Series at Le Creuset on Thursday and then will host a special family style luncheon with Chef Ken Vedrinski at Trattoria Lucca on Friday.
Lee and Vedrinski, long time pals, have similar connections to family and the influence people like their grandmothers have had on their cooking. Together, they will collaborate on an entertaining gathering where platters of foods found in the book will be shared and stories will be intermixed throughout the event. The luncheon begins at 12:30pm and costs $75 for an all-inclusive three-course meal with a signed copy of Lee’s book. Space is extremely limited and reservations can be made by calling 843-973-3323 or email [email protected].
