On today's episode of All in the Industry®, host Shari Bayer has a special “On the Road” edition from Charleston Wine & Food Festival in Charleston, SC, which took place March 4-8, 2020. Shari tips off the show with her PR Tip from Heritage Radio's Podcast Studio in the Culinary Village, followed by her live broadcast with local chef hero, Mike Lata, Chef/Partner of FIG Restaurant, a vibrant neighborhood bistro focusing on seasonally inspired cuisine, which he opened in Charleston in 2003; and Chef/Partner of The Ordinary, a classic oyster bar & seafood hall in Charleston’s Upper King district, which opened in 2012. Among numerous accolades, The Ordinary was nominated by the James Beard Foundation as Best New Restaurant in 2013, and by GQ as one of the best restaurants of the same year. Mike was nominated in 2007 and 2008 for James Beard’s Best Chef: Southeast Award, and he took it home in 2009. A native New Englander, Mike started his culinary career at an early age, working in kitchens in Boston, New Orleans, Atlanta and France before landing in Charleston in 1998. He is a hands-on, self-taught chef who is known for his longstanding and outspoken commitment to support local farmers, fishermen and purveyors in the Charleston area. Following this broadcast, Shari gives a recap of her fabulous experience at Charleston Wine & Food Festival, and shares her solo dining experience at Charleston's popular seafood eatery, 167 Raw.
