Travel back in time to an earlier age of Charleston and meet Nat Fuller (1822-1866), a former slave purchased at the age of 15 who later became a classically trained chef. Fuller’s undeniable legacy is palpable within the city’s culinary journey. During his time, Fuller was considered the gourmet caterer of the Lowcountry and ran The Bachelor’s Retreat restaurant.
Get a taste of nineteenth century life in Charleston at the peninsula’s preserved-as-found, authentic, antebellum townhouse, the Aiken-Rhett House Museum. Next, embark on a guided tour of Fuller’s former home, the beautifully restored Gatewood House, for a glimpse at his life as the house butler (1843-1852). Next, enjoy beautifully curated light fare courtesy of Chef Matthew Raiford and Jovan Sage of Brunswick, Georgia’s The Farmer and the Larder, Kevin Mitchell, as well as locals Chef BJ Dennis (Gullah-Geechee culinary storyteller), and Chef April Robinson (Butter Tapas).
