Callie's Hot Little Biscuit | Charleston, SC
Carrie Morey had an early introduction to the food world courtesy of her mother, caterer extraordinaire, Callie White. Carrie founded Callie’s Charleston Biscuits in 2005 with the goal of making the tender, buttery, made-by-hand biscuits of her mother accessible across the country. Touted by Saveur, Food & Wine, Southern Living, The New York Times and Oprah among others, her biscuits have garnered freezer space in some of the most coveted retail stores in America. Using no machinery whatsoever and with only the finest ingredients, Carrie and her small team of bakers are keeping the tradition of Southern biscuit making alive. With seven different varieties of biscuits, a pimento cheese collection, and retailers all over the country, Carrie never dreamed that success would taste so good – buttery good that is. Morey has appeared live on the NBC Today Show, Fox & Friends, and QVC and has been twice profiled by The Food Network’s hit television show Unwrapped. She was chosen as one of Martha Stewarts’s "Dreamers into Doers" in 2008 and profiled on the Martha Stewart Show. Morey’s cookbook and narrative on entrepreneurship and life in the lowcountry – Callie’s Biscuits and Southern Traditions - debuted in Fall of 2013. Summer 2014 brought the launch of Morey’s latest endeavor – Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit – a grab-and-go biscuit restaurant on Charleston’s Upper King Street. What was once a biscuit legendary in South Carolina has now become a favorite across America.
