Columbia Food

The History Of Cuisine In The Famously Hot City

By Laura Aboyan

Eating is a pleasure in the South Carolina capital these days, thanks to chefs, farmers and artisanal purveyors who feed an insatiable hunger for anything fresh, local and delicious. Columbia offers a bounty for enthusiasts--places like the urban farm City Roots, the all-local farmers' market Soda City and the array of community supported agriculture options. For exquisite dining, the city's options are as variable as its influences. The locally focused menu at Terra, the intense and alluring ambiance at Rosso, the vegetarian-inspired fare at Rosewood's Market Deli and the flair of self-taught chef Ricky Mollohan give the city a unique palate. Grab a reservation with author Laura Aboyan as she details the delectable history of Columbia cuisine.
