a Taste of Greenville.


One of my favorite things about Christmas is that it gives me an excuse to buy gifts for people. This was a favorite gift we put together for some out-of-town family this year: a Taste of Greenville basket. It’s no secret that I love my city, but Christmas gave us a chance to send a few pieces of it across the country in a tiny basket.

The idea was to create a ‘fruit basket’ assortment using only items made in Greenville, SC. I made my list and headed to a few favorite shops: The Swamp Rabbit Cafe & Grocery, art&light gallery, Barkery Bistro, and The New York Butcher Shop. Here’s what I ended up with:

I don’t think you can’t get much more Southern than pecans, grits and peach salsa!

I love how it turned out, and even more importantly, so did our far-away family members.
