Hey, I'm Jarrod, a traveler from the American South; originally from Northwest Florida's Emerald Coast, who's called 8 different towns, islands, and cities around the world home, traveled to 48 of the United States, and throughout Canada, Mexico, Europe and Asia.

Today, I'm fortunate to call Charleston and the beautiful South Carolina Lowcountry home. The questions "What's your favorite food?" and "Where's your favorite place to eat?" are two of my favorite to ask and answer.

I appreciate all different types of food, with some of my favorites including whole-hog barbecue, local seafood, and traditional northern Indian dishes. I'm supportive of local family farms and restaurants, shying away from national chains.

On The Dixie Dish, I'm sharing some of the best food I find, all in an effort to help you enjoy good eats along the way. Life's too short not to enjoy good food, so welcome, stay awhile, and follow along in the journey!
