Birmingham’s Frank Stitt is an American treasure. On Saturday night, his friends (who happen to be some of the South’s best chefs) gathered to honor him at the Charleston Wine + Food Festival‘s “A Tribute to Frank Stitt.” Each chef cooked a dish to honor Frank, and each dish showcased Frank’s passion for regional ingredients, his respect for technique, and his quiet elegance.
More than a few toasts were made, tales were told, and goosebumps ensued. Simply put, it was an unforgettable evening that made us proud to live in Birmingham and proud to have a man like Frank Stitt at the forefront of the most important regional cuisine in America.
