Cane + grain: no two ingredients are more paramount in telling the history of Charleston’s foodways. And what better place to share those stories than at historic Middleton Place National Historic Landmark. Dive into the Barbados culture that landed in Charleston and influenced the Lowcountry for centuries. In addition to soaking up the immaculately preserved gardens, you’ll have the opportunity to explore Middleton Place and its stable yards with some hands-on rice and sugarcane programs that will make historic plant-to-plate connections. Hear from Glenn Roberts of Anson Mills as he tells the history and testifies to the cultural significance of beloved Carolina Gold Rice. You’ll also be privy to the great molasses vs. cane juice debate while enjoying a healthy tasting of Mount Gay Rums, the oldest rum in the world that dates back to 1703!
