Foodie Festies: Where the Girls Are

COOKGIRL is changing up the 2016 Program Calendar because the Charleston Wine + Food Festival March 2nd - 6th is such a celebration of so many deserving women in the food arena - - and The Bad Bitches of Charleston has made an impact by bringing attention to so many talented artisans in Charleston, with an unapologetic you-either-get-it-or-you-don't attitude they "cultivate the ultimate dining experience powered by badass women." The group hosts events and pop-ups that launched in Charleston and have already branched out to Nashville and New York. All of it with the purpose to provide the one thing that women in culinary need: attention and access to capital. Case in point, they gave away more than $30,000 in scholarship money in December 2015. So as we begin the wrap-up on The New York project, we interrupt ourselves to give a head’s up about this not-to-be-missed foodie fest.
