The Queen

My name is Sydney, and the two things I love most in this world (other than my cats) are writing and eating. Queen of the Food Age is dedicated to everything food–recipes, quotes, thoughts, reviews, pictures, and interacting with other people out there who are as passionate about food as I am.

I’m not a chef (but I do say BAM! a lot when I’m cooking), nor have I really had any professional training (unless you count 1 semester of culinary school… which most people don’t), but ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you: I’m a foodivore. I live to eat.

Marshmallow domination.

PR/Media: I do not accept payment for reviews. I will accept gift cards or free classes as an incentive to come to your establishment, but that does not guarantee a positive review. To contact me, visit my PR / Media Kit page or email queenofthefoodage[@]gmail.com.

    I just found your blog. Very entertaining ;).

    Since you mentioned us in your May 7 entry … how did you know about “Trashcans”? We don’t advertise them. They were invented by the previous owner (we bought the place in 2010) . The “Trashcan” has become a local legend among the college crowd. We only offer them if someone asks.

    Anyway please come by and have a meal. The owner and head chef, Hope, prepares everything fresh and uses as much locally grown produce as possible. The “Vegetable Bin” is a lifesaver sometimes. She is here most days until 8PM so just ask for “mom’. Chucktown Tavern is the only place in the Market St area where you can get a home cooked lunch Mon-Fri for $5.95.

    Thanks

    • I used to live right on Beaufain and Chucktown tavern was the closest place to my house. When the old owners were there, they recommended a Trashcan as a special drink for my 21st birthday And its been a tradition for trashcans and karaoke at Chucktown tavern ever since!

      And your menu looks great, I’ll definitely be stopping by for lunch or dinner in the next couple of weeks!!

      Thanks so much for finding me, Marty! I look forward to eating one of Hope’s delicious home cooked meals!

    Hi, my name is Alex and I am one of the founding team members of @theFavecast. We are a tool for amateur explorers to share short video recommendations that capture their favorite items and experiences.

    We really like helping bloggers have more fun sharing their experiences in short video, just ask Sus and Chlo (http://bit.ly/1kTBiLf).

    Your blog seemed particularly awesome, so I was wondering if you would like to talk about ways to make short video a cool component of your blog, either online or over coffee.

    We can even offer you our awesome Favecast preview version for you to try out before we release publicly!

    I look forward to talking further,

    Alex

    Hey Sydney,

    I just found your blog and am loving it! Been going through your restaurant reviews of some of my favorite places here in Charleston. We appear to have two things in common: 1. A belief that it is always Wine o’ Clock and 2. A deep affection for the cornbread and honey butter at Edmund’s Oast. Holy. Crap.

    I work with a mobile farmers’ market called Lowcountry Street Grocery (LSG) that also services local restaurants, like Edmunds. Depending on when you’ve been in, you may have tasted some of our greens in your dish! I think you might really like what we’re doing at LSG, check us out at http://www.lowcountrystreetgrocery.com :) Cheers, and happy new year!
