Taste Of The Season: November 2011
Let the holidays begin! The Lowcountry’ s premier culinary event is the place to be, as you wine, dine and enjoy award-winning cuisine from more than 35 of the area’s top chefs at the 22nd Annual Taste of the Season, presented by the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.
Taste of the Season is a food lover’s paradise. Here’s your chance to enjoy several restaurants recently touted on Wine Spectator’s “Restaurant Award of Excellence List,” including HH Prime, Michael Anthony’s, Red Fish and The Old Oyster Factory.
Classic, contemporary and Lowcountry rustic cuisine blend with seasonal ingredients for the right holiday note.

“We’ve been participating in Taste of the Season for a number of years now. It’s an outstanding event and we always enjoy being part of it!” Paulmeier said. Highlights include:
