The phrase “locally owned and operated” is something that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. I feel like every publisher’s note I write speaks to this on some level, but ultimately what I’m trying to say with each of these I write is that the unique local focus of our restaurant industry is a big part of what sets Hilton Head Island apart. You’ll find the odd chain restaurant here and there on the island, but for the most part our restaurants are run by some of the most hardestworking people you’ll ever befriend. And you can’t help but befriend them. Part of my job is stopping in to visit these folks, catching up on what’s new and replenishing the magazine racks they so graciously let me keep at their restaurants. And with every visit, I’m amazed at how little of our conversation revolves around business. Because here we’re all neighbors. We’re all locals. We know each others’ families, and we care about what’s happening in their lives. And the folks running these restaurants are not just a vital part of our community, they’re a shining example of the hard work so many in their industry put in each day in making Hilton Head Island a true culinary destination.

Whenever I feel like publishing is hard work, these folks remind me of what hard work really looks like. They’re in the trenches, checking on deliveries, seating customers, taking orders, working in the kitchen and even dealing with the guy from Taste of Hilton Head who wants to come in and chew the fat. And to see them in action is to see what real passion looks like. Even with supply chain nightmares, soaring food costs and labor shortages, they are hard at work with a smile on their face every day. We didn’t invent “locally owned and operated” on Hilton Head Island, but our restaurateurs sure have perfected it. The rest of us are just the lucky beneficiaries of their hard work, dedication and mastery of their craft. I hope that each and every one of you experience the same pleasure that I do when venturing out for your next meal and who knows, you may make a new friend in the process.

Nightingale first met his wife in New Orleans, and shortly after he met Celeste, the French Cajun matriarch of the family. A whiz in the kitchen, she quickly welcomed Earl with open arms. “She was just a great Southern cook,” he said. “When I first met my wife, her mother was in the kitchen cooking and she kept speaking in this French creole language. I asked my wife, ‘What is she saying? Is she talking about me?’”

“This restaurant was named…” he began before a lump in his throat choked off the speech he’d been giving to the assembled crowd. “This restaurant was named for (my wife’s) mother.”

The décor also carries hints of New Orleans through wrought iron accents, but the rest is the same upscale coastal chic that have made Nightingale’s other restaurants such a hit.

Earl Nightingale has worn a lot of hats in his time as a restaurateur. Along with his son Alex as well as the rest of his family, he’s raised places like Ela’s, The Pearl in Bluffton and Roadhouse in Beaufort to legendary status in the Lowcountry’s culinary community. But he’s not just the front of the house “face of the company.” You’ll find him doing everything from hammering in nails to helping plate dishes in his operation.

He’s been a lot of things. During the opening of Celeste, however, he became something that those who know him might not have thought possible: He became speechless.

“All of our restaurants do a higher-end caliber of dish we call coastal cuisine. You can never get away from scallops, grouper, steamed lobster, and of course our steaks” said Nightingale. “But we are going to have five or six dishes that carry a little bit of that Cajun creole influence. Jambalaya, Crawfish etouffee, New Orleansstyle BBQ shrimp (head on, in a rich red sauce)…”

TASTEOFHILTONHEAD.COM12

“We have a standard we use in all of our restaurants. John (Wasem, Nightingale’s son-in-law) does all of our

“I like to look at a restaurant as a whole sensory experience – it all has to come together,” he said. “With Ela’s we have the water view, so we just wanted the inside of Celeste to have enough of those visual pearls.”Andit certainly did, with walls of crisp white shiplap encircling dining that doesn’t feel overly contemporary or pretentious, but embraces the upscale. To one end of the massive footprint, a gargantuan bar serves up a litany of craft cocktails and boasts a side stage for live music. At the heart of the dining room, a glass-walled wine cellar offers private dining as well as a showcase for some of the fantastic wines on offer.

Nightingale needn’t have worried. “She was just telling us what she needed from the store,” he said with a laugh.AsCeleste’s name is on the wall, her namesake restaurant will carry some of her Cajun influence to a menu that should seem very familiar to anyone who has dined at Ela’s or The Pearl.

Old Fort Pub closed, Nightingale saw a gap in the market for high-end dining on the north end and seized the opportunity. And thus began five solid months of painting, repairing, creating and beautifying. And Nightingale, far from being just the guy who gets to give speeches at the opening, was in there nearly every day working away to see his vision brought to life.

“The building was in surprisingly good shape – we did have to put a new roof on… but all the air conditioning units, the walk-in fridge and the drainage system all worked,” he said. “It troubled our heart to see such a nice facility in a great location sit vacant for so Whenlong.”the

It’s a stunning space, made all the more fascinating when one remembers that this had previously been the north end Outback Steakhouse, which shuttered before Hurricane Matthew and never reopened. Looking at Celeste now, it’s hard to believe that before this transformation it had sat derelict for six years.

Something tells us Celeste would be proud of what’s been created in her name.

Somewhere out there is a man — maybe someone reading this magazine, maybe even you — who played a gigantic role in the history of Kenny B’s and probably doesn’t even know it. In November of 1999, with the fledgling Cajun restaurant still trying to find its fanbase in its first year, chef and owner Kenny Ballard received a phone call from this mystery man that would change the entire trajectory of his“Irestaurant.hadaguy call me and I don’t know who it was. But he wanted to know if I could fry a Turkey. This is a true story. Just reached out of the blue,” explained Ballard, unwinding among one of his restaurant’s festive outdoor tables. “And, and of course we knew how to do it, but we weren’t. I wasn’t even open on Thanksgiving.”

TASTEOFHILTONHEAD.COM16

But it sparked something in Ballard. The next day, with a week to go before Thanksgiving, he placed an ad in the paper for a full Cajun Thanksgiving special – a fried turkey, with jambalaya, gumbo and dessert for $80.

Kenny B’s French Quarter Café

A tradition was born, one that now sees the staff at Kenny B’s (as well as Ballard’s friends and family) coming together in an all-handson-deck situation to fry up north of 300 turkeys every Thanksgiving Day. This day has become such an important one for the restaurant, if you venture back behind the counter, you’ll find an entire back kitchen that sits uninhabited and

Figuring it was worth a shot, if only to get his money worth from the bag of oil he’d need to buy to fry that one turkey, Ballard didn’t expect much. Instead, he sold 40 of them in the first two days.

unused save for this one day out of the year.

“We started with nothing,” he said. “I cashed it all in to open this restaurant. And when you feel that way about a place, and survive things like 9/11, the 2009 recession… you don’t want to give it up because you know what it was like when you had nothing. That is part of the longevity and sometimes that’s what keeps me going, remembering when I was bouncing 40 checks a month.”

“Nobody thought we would make it when we opened,” said Ballard.Nearly a quarter of a century later, no one is saying that now.

These days, Kenny B’s is a little less dependent on its annual turkey fry-up to stay in the black. As an island institution, it has spent the last 23 years building a loyal, dedicated and hungry following. You might point to the mouth-watering Cajun food, as authentic as you’ll get this side of the bayou, as their secret sauce. You might credit their Sunday brunches, a die-hard weekly tradition of locals and hungover tourists alike. You might even credit the freewheeling atmosphere at Kenny B’s, or their proximity to the beach. Ballard has his own theories.

“Back in the day, that one day would keep me afloat,” said Ballard. “I’d love to know who it was that first called me because that’s what shot me the idea.”

He adds, incidentally, that Coastal States Bank was a huge help in working with him during those lean days. “They kept me going.”Andthat help let Kenny B’s leave the lean times in the rear view, having posted it’s two highest-grossing-sales years in the last two years. And that was before someone went and built that dazzling new Lowcountry Celebration Park just a few feet away from his front door. So what impact will that have on Kenny B’s bright future, especially given the loss of the BI-LO at the heart of the plaza it calls home? Ballard is tight-lipped, but optimistic.“Wedon’t have an anchor tenant here now, but you come in here on the weekends and it is packed,” he said. “So maybe it helps, maybe it doesn’t. But I do like that they cleaned all that up over Spokenthere.”likesomeone who has guided his restaurant through highs and lows on the strengths of his mouth-watering food, his wife’s magnetic personality and unyielding work ethic. Through all the trials and tribulations, however, one thing that has never wavered has been the unique position Kenny B’s holds in the hearts of islanders and visitors.

“I would say working with my wife (Laverne) was the secret on that,” he said. “She’s my left, I’m her right. And she cooks as good as I do. A lot of people don’t realize that.”

And while Laverne does certainly play her vital role in the restaurant, running the front of house and serving as the smiling face of the restaurant to customers, it takes more than true love to keep a restaurant going on this island, a place that can be a bit fickle at times. Ballard knows this, having been a part of the island’s restaurant scene since he first arrived here. And he knows exactly what it took to keep the lights on at Kenny B’s.

BY CHRISTY BARONI • PHOTO BY ROB KAUFMAN

A few months ago my husband retired from the Air Force after 23 years of service. He flew his last flight in the F-15 Eagle and received his final salute. When I say we celebrated this accomplishment, I mean we CELEBRATED! People flew in from all over the country, family members gathered, stories were shared, old photos passed around, and a glass or two was raised to toast the occasion. Not many of us will have such a clear and specific closing of a chapter in our lives. Sometimes the transitions from one role or phase to another just slowly fades. Other times an accomplishment or achievement feels small or unimportant.

Drink more water. Set a goal to drink at least one glass of water before every meal. This will clear your skin up, aid in your digestion, and also help you be more aware of feeling full during a meal. See how many days in a row you can hit this goal and celebrate with some friends when you’ve made it a week straight.

Walk a few more steps. Did you know that walking even just 20 minutes after a meal will increase your metabolism? I wrote about metabolism in all of the 2017 Taste articles, but long story short, keeping your body burning energy is key in feeling good physically and mentally. Set a goal to get that 20 minute walk in at least once daily, maybe even invite a friend to join you. In this case, the habit itself might become a celebration. Try a new recipe. Can we admit how easy it is to get in a rut with food? Chicken on Monday, pasta on Tuesday, and so on, week after week. Trying new recipes and new foods gives you exposure to a variety of nutrients, and also keeps fun and excitement in your kitchen. If you need a place to start Chef Karla shared a new recipe on page 59 in this magazine. Inviting friends and family to try something new is a fun way to enjoy a healthy habit. What habits do you have that deserve a spotlight? What small step have you made that warrants a celebration? We should make celebrating every success a healthy habit as well.

A REASON TO CELEBRATE

If I have learned anything from spending time with fighter pilots, it is this: celebrate everything. If someone is important to you, say it. If something is important to you, cherish it. If there is something you want in your life, let people around you know and then go for it. This goes for the wellness habits in your life as well. The social media feeds lead us to believe that 30 day transformations of wellness and weight loss are all around us. That a newer, better you is right around the corner, and that when the overhaul is complete you can celebrate then. But I’m here to remind you that the YOU you are today deserves a clap on the back. Let’s talk about some small habits that deserve a big celebration.

But once a year, for those who support Bluffton Self Help’s mission to help lift up neighbors in need, Hewitt Oaks becomes a much more literal feast.

The sixth celebration of Bluffton Self Help’s continuing commitment to the community is a culinary carnival.

SIPS AND SEAFOOD

Hewitt, along with his wife Bethany co-own Hewitt Oaks as well as Southern Graces catering. For years, the Hewitts have been creating spectacular events together – Bethany handles décor, layout and general flow of the event while Christopher runs the kitchen – but there is nothing like a party in their own back

The moss-draped branches that shade the grounds at Hewitt Oaks are a feast for the senses. There’s the sight of tall grasses swaying in the breeze, harkening back to a peaceful time when the entire Lowcountry looked just like this. There are the tantalizing scents of salt and pluff mud, drifting on the winds from the May River.

“Thisyard.isour sixth Sips and Seafood, but our third working with

“Chef (Christopher Hewitt) has worked with all of these amazing restaurants, and the food is phenomenal,” said Danielle Dekruif, Marketing & Communications Manager for Bluffton Self Help.

TASTEOFHILTONHEAD.COM 39 the Hewitts,” said Dekruif. “We’ve finally found a home.”

This year, Self Help hopes to not only add to the sheer number of people they’ve helped, but to help them in ways they never have before. That pivot Dekruif mentioned? It’s part of a new approach at Self Help, one that goes beyond simply paying bills and keeping the lights on. This new approach entails getting neighbors through a crisis, then giving them the tools and the education they need to fulfill the promise in Self Help’s name: to help themselves.

And you’ll have done a world of good. Last year’s event helped 171 families remain in their homes, eased the strain of utility bills for 73 families, helped 13 households with medical bills and funder higher education scholarships for 13 students.

“We were founded on the simple notion of neighbors helping neighbors, and that hasn’t changed,” she said. “We meet people in crisis, but more than that we want to look to the future and build a community where everyone has the opportunity to not just get by, but truly thrive.”

blufftonselfhelp.org.

“When Sips and Seafood started, it was a celebration of 30 years of Bluffton Self Help Serving the community, held in conjunction with the Arts and Seafood Festival, which just happens to be the month Ida Martin founded Self Help,” said Dekruif. Over the years, it has grown from an anniversary party into something much greater. “Just as Self Help has grown and pivoted, so has the event. It’s going to be one of the best fundraising events in the Lowcountry. We promise you will leave feeling inspired, raving about the food, and maybe even meet a few new friends.”

Held from 5-10 p.m. on October 21 this year, Sips and Seafood has served as an annual recognition of not only the fantastic work done throughout the community, but also of the indispensable support that community has shown in return.

Sips and Seafood will be held from 5-10 p.m. October 21, 2022 at Hewitt Oaks, 205 Stillwell Road in Bluffton. To learn more, visit

It takes vision.“My father Bob, who founded The Jazz Corner and The Junior Jazz Foundation, had a vision to present a Jazz Festival on Hilton Head Island that was affordable for everyone,” said Dave Masteller. That vision, Dave says was to let people, “experience the great American art form of Jazz while aiding in raising monies for community schools and music programs.”

SWEET SOUNDS

The eighth annual Bob Masteller’s Jazz For All Ages Jazz Fest returns with some of the biggest acts in the country.

And since 2014, The Jazz Festival has done exactly that, attracting some of the biggest Jazz acts on Earth to our little island while serving as a massive fundraiser for The Junior Jazz Foundation.

“This year, for the first night of our festival on October 30th, we are hosting one of the most prominent and iconic orchestras in the history of the Jazz Swing Era... The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra,” said Masteller. The Count Basie Orchestra, today directed by Scotty Barnhart, has won every respected jazz poll in the world at least once, has taken home 18 Grammy Awards, performed for Kings, Queens, and other world Royalty, appeared in several movies, television shows, and at every major jazz festival and concert hall in the world.

This includes presenting The Junior Jazz Rising Stars each evening prior to the headlining band,” said Masteller. “They are truly the next generation of Jazz!”“Our goal is to continue to expand the event and offer multiple venues to enjoy Jazz to further compliment the festival. This year will be the first year we are presenting a Jazz Brunch for the festival,” said Lesch.

“Blues Traveler is not just a band; it’s a lifestyle,” Guitarist Chan Kinchla leaves off. “Blues Traveler is our life’s work. It’s enabled us to do so many other things. This little tribe we built in New York during the late 80s has survived all the way through—plus or minus some dearly departed brothers and sisters. It’s empowered us to be creative, make people happy, and travel around spreading some good vibes. The longer we do it, the more we like it,” he laughs.

“We take our time to make sure our meat is the best that it can possibly be, so we use nothing but high-quality hickory, oak, and other hardwoods to smoke to perfection,” according to Chef Anthony DiBernardo of Swig and Swine with four locations in Charleston.Meanwhile,

But this rockin’ weekend isn’t just about the food. Both Cranford Hollow and Blues Traveler will hit the stage during the Saturday’s Rock N’ Ribs festival.

Blues Traveler burst onto the music scene with a trio of Goldselling albums — “Blues Traveler” (1990), “Travelers and Thieves” (1991), and “Save His Soul” (1993). Then in 1994, “Four” went six-times Platinum and spawned the definitive “Run-Around,” which garnered a Grammy Award in the category of Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group. They logged another Platinum album with “Straight On Till Morning” in 1998 and spent the next 20 years selling out shows on multiple continents. In 2018, “Hurry Up & Hang Around” kicked off a new era with the guys firing on all cylinders. However, they look back and leap forward on their 14th full-length album, “Traveler’s Blues” (Round Hill Records).

Billed as a “people-first festival,” according to the Rock N’ Ribs website, “the BBQ is all-you-can-eat for every attendee. The beer and booze are free for VIP ticket holders. You’ll get some free swag and we won’t oversell tickets. Each ticket type is capped to ensure maximum enjoyment for our guests. Have personal interactions with all of our award-winning pitmasters and every attendee will have a great view of our awesome bands.”

Working for PEANUTS

How a little boiled peanut company in Bluffton is heating up an age-old Southern tradition.

Lauren Marcinkoski remembers driving onto Tybee Island back in the day, stopping by to greet the unofficial welcoming committee of roadside boiled peanut vendors. These ramshackle stands once met every visitor to the island, serving up some piping hot southern culture right out of the crock pot. No doubt those of you who have been Hilton Head Island locals remember a similar welcome when heading on island. That roadside peanut vendor was once a staple of the South, sending visitors on their way with a belly full of that inimitable snack food that once defined the region. Blissfully robust and salty, like mashed potatoes in pill form, the classic boiled peanut is one of those treats that connects us all to the first time we made our way to the area. For us newcomers, it’s the taste that helped us fall in love with the South.

BY BARRY KAUFMAN • PHOTOS COURTESY LURAY PEANUT

“There’s a lot of nostalgia for this snack; it’s a part of a lot of peoples’ childhood

Over time, Marcinkoski noticed fewer and fewer peanut vendors as she drove onto Tybee. Pushed out by the big developments and the ceaseless march of progress, they were quickly becoming a thing of the past. She wasn’t about to let that happen.

Luray Peanut Co. sources its peanuts from all over the region, with the lion’s share coming from co-founder Corrin Bowers’ family farm, one of the largest in the state. And while the peanuts alone are some of the best you can find, it’s what Luray does with them that sets theirs

With their heat-and-serve bags, Luray Peanut Co. was able to bring the classic boiled peanut back to TIAA Bank Field and it’s been a smash hit at the concessions stand ever since.

“Theapart.technology has been around for a while, and what we did with it was quite simple,” she said. Each pack of Luray peanuts is boiled to perfection, flash frozen at its peak, and sealed in a bag. You just microwave them for a few minutes and you have boiled peanuts that are as fresh as any roadside stand could ever hope to make. This convenience factor has made Luray Peanuts a hot item, landing them on convenience store shelves as well as every Harris Teeter and Food Lion in the state.

“The team and the whole group there are very supportive of local startup companies,” she said. “A lot of stadiums had boiled peanuts in the past, but the old crock pot model made it very labor intensive.”

“We started with a few concerts before the season starts, and it’s been the second or third top-selling item in the stands,” she said. “It’s not just a concept anymore.”

Luray Peanuts really hit the big time this past summer, however, when it became the official boiled peanut of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
