For the 2014 Palette and Palate Stroll, the gallery is partnering with Cypress restaurant. Cypress, housed in a historic two-story building on East Bay Street in downtown Charleston, S.C., opened in 2001. Led by two-time James Beard nominee Craig Deihl, the team at Cypress uses Lowcountry ingredients to showcase Deihl’s signature style. Executive Chef Craig Deihl, recognized as one of the nation’s youngest, talented chefs, infuses classic Lowcountry cuisine of the South with an innovative combination of flavors from around the globe. In 2007, Deihl authored his first cookbook, Cypress, which has immediately received rave reviews from culinary experts.

The menu, which includes dishes such as Crisp Wasabi Tuna with a ginger-garlic glaze and Certified Angus Beef® Filet of Beef with housemade Boursin cheese and Deihl’s award-winning in-house charcuterie program, the Artisan Meat Share, which produces over 80 types of meats, is complemented by a wine list displayed in a three-story wine wall, featuring vintages from well-known to small, boutique wineries around the world and sweet creations by Andrea Upchurch.

I want to do desserts that are light and clean,” say Upchurch. She will be serving her sweet, dreamy creations at this year’s Palette & Palate Stroll.

Not following this year’s fashions but reaching towards the future and showing respect for the past, the presented artwork fulfills the beholder’s need for beauty and the collector’s wish for strong investments. This is art for the soul; art that lets the eyes breathe fresh air.

Partnering with Cypress once again for this year’s Palette and Palate Stroll, guests will enjoy Chef Garet Hutchinson’s cuisine. A native of Charleston, SC, Hutchinson’s pursuit of the culinary arts began at a young age. Working in kitchens throughout his high school years, Hutchinson found a true passion for food. Eager to break in to fine dining and prove his talents, Hutchinson joined the Cypress team as a dishwasher in 2003. Around this time, he enrolled at the Charleston Culinary Institute to expand his culinary knowledge. Hutchinson talents were easily recognized both in school and at Cypress. Graduating at the top of his class, he was awarded the James Beard Scholarship and selected as a chef for the National Chef Awards Ceremony. Cypress Executive Chef Craig Deihl who promoted Hutchinson within the Cypress team also recognized Hutchinson’s natural talents in the kitchen.
