Popular Hilton Head Island chef Orchid Paulmeier of One Hot Mama’s was one of four South Carolina chefs selected to be a 2016 South Carolina Ambassador for an event at the James Beard House in New York City. The program is designed to showcase South Carolina’s food culture and travel appeal in other parts of the country, in hopes of driving more tourists to the state.
The New York City event will take place in August. The other three chefs selected were Teryi Youngblood, of Passerelle Bistro in Greenville, Ramone Dickerson of Wing City/2Fat2Fly in Columbia, and Forrest Parker of the Old Village Post House in Mount Pleasant.
