On Thursday evening, February 18th, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m., TidePointe will present the 10th Anniversary Cooks & Books Gala to benefit The Literacy Center and their mission to improve literacy in the Lowcountry!
It is an elegant evening – complete with a sumptuous dinner buffet, decadent desserts, wonderful jazz, unique auction items and a full open bar – and all for a great cause. Executive Chef Stephen Stewart, winner of the 2014 “Heat is On” cooking competition at the Cooks & Books Festival, and his culinary staff will showcase an incredible collection of fabulous hors d’oeuvres, buffet entrees and tempting hand-crafted desserts. To compliment the dinner, TidePointe’s outstanding service team will offer specialty mixed drinks – book themed drinks like “The Last of the Mohito’s” – along with a full open bar and special wine tastings. The John Brackett Trio, an accomplished and well-known local jazz group, will provide a wonderful backdrop for this special evening.
This year’s silent and live auctions are going to be the most exciting yet! At the live auction, one appetizing item to be won is a five-course gourmet dinner for ten prepared in your home by Chef Eric Sayers and Chef Yuri Gow. Other prizes include a five-course Gullah favorites meal for eight in your home, prepared by cookbook author Sallie Ann Robinson, dinner or cocktail buffet for eight in your home by Two Tomatoes Catering; an oyster roast for 10 at Hudson’s Seafood Restaurant on the Docks; and a chance to live your dreams as a judge at the Cooks & Books “The Heat is On!” Chefs’ competition! You may notice a reoccurring theme—cooking is what this auction is all about!
