A Journey From Farm to Table
The phrase "farm to table" has become ubiquitous when discussing modern cuisine, but many diners may not understand the collaboration that is necessary between farmers and restaurants for a product to appear on a plate, and how a farmer's process can influence flavors.
SCETV's Palmetto Scene was invited along for the ride when the chefs of Columbia's Tallulah took a field trip to Chester's Watson Farms. Executive chef and owner Russell Jones's motto is: "Find the highest quality product you possibly can, and don't screw it up." He and his team were looking for South Carolina-raised meats and found an ideal partnership with head farmer Matt Watson, whose pasture rotation and sustainable methods ensure the sweetest grass-fed beef.
