Culinary Opportunities at Stars Rooftop and Grill
Posted On September 26, 2022
Chef Manuel Sequeira and Charleston’s best all-star culinary team work to infuse the Charleston food culture with what is now called “Carolina Cuisine” by critics and locals. This regional style of cooking is defined by personal relationships with local farmers, fisherman, and many other varied purveyors from the bountiful food sources in the Lowcountry, Upcountry, and Appalachian Mountain Areas of the Carolinas. Another component of “Carolina Cuisine” is the use of live fire wood cooking on a grill and spit as well as flame baking in a hearth oven. This culinary style uses a flame fired flattop griddle or plancha for certain fish, meats and local vegetables to create outstanding, one-of-a-kind dishes.
