As a home cook,WFC was my first foray into the competitive cooking arena. My husband and I retired a couple of years ago to a little piece of heaven on an agricultural island southwest of Charleston, SC. I have learned to throw a cast net and improve my fishing and foraging skills so that I can have fresh flounder, trout, redfish, oysters, shrimp, blue crab, pecans, figs, citrus and even mushrooms all from my own back yard. I have come to appreciate the use of local ingredients and enjoy the benefits of having a major family-owned organic farmer as my neighbor who sells his produce to some of the finest restaurants in the area.
