Savannah GA Culinary Excursion for Two Couples

Historic Savannah is known for its charm, beauty AND growing culinary scene. Don’t miss this personalized chance to savor the new flavor of this lovely port city. Two couples will enjoy a two-night stay at the Andaz Savannah hotel located on Ellis Square in the Historic District. This chic, boutique hotel is home to 22 Square Restaurant and Chef Lauren Teague, a local foods advocate who serves up new South cuisine in her farm to table restaurant – think Southern fare re-imagined. Chef Teague, who has all the credentials, is a fan of and frequent shopper at the Forysth Farmer’s Market. She has graciously promised a chef’s tour of all her favorite Savannah culinary haunts followed by a chef’s table dinner at 22 Square.

Next up, Chef Hugh Acheson and The Florence, his latest restaurant that just opened in Savannah. Housed in a converted ice factory and already a huge hit, this Italian-focused restaurant finds the kinship between Italian and Southern food and culture. Chef Hugh has generously offered a 5-course tasting with wine pairings for your party of four. This was one of America’s most highly anticipated restaurant openings of 2014; it will be special!

Not new to Savannah is Back in the Day Bakery, Cheryl and Griff Day’s heavenly home to made-from-scratch baked goods. They will host you for breakfast one morning in their now famous bakeshop. To celebrate the bakery’s tenth anniversary last year, this duo wrote a book filled with customers’ favorite recipes; two signed copies are included.

You’ll need a little exercise to balance all the good eatin’, so plan a day excursion out to beautiful Tybee Island. Half-Moon Outfitters is providing Stand Up Paddle boards with all the gear for the weekend!

And to remind you of the good food and fun you had, our friends at Sweet Savannah Shrimp will send you some of their sweet, sweet Georgia shrimp – the best!
