Cooking Dinner Theatre: Summertime Grilling

May 21, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Enjoy a relaxing night out as Chefs Christopher and Bethany Hewitt demonstrate how to cook a deliciously sophisticated meal on the grill.

Enjoy a relaxing night out for you and your significant other! We’ve planned a delicious menu, featuring locally-sourced ingredients, to be enjoyed outdoors in the courtyard.

Hewitt Oaks is just five minutes from Palmetto Bluff, surrounded by sweeping Lowcountry views and graceful moss-laden oaks. When you first arrive, you’ll be served complimentary signature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

After some mingling and relaxation, Chefs Christopher and Bethany Hewitt will show us how to prepare a mouthwatering dinner on the grill. The best part is you won’t have to do any of the work! While watching the cooking demonstration, you’ll get to enjoy a plated dinner together with your choice of wine and beer.

We’ll have tables for 2, 4, 6, or 8 — so bring your significant other or come with a group of friends! Learn our tips and secrets for preparing each dish, and get all the recipes to take home with you!

Cost is $179 per couple and includes all food and beverages. 21 and over only. Tickets are non-refundable.

We are following COVID-19 guidelines and will be implementing additional food safety and sanitization measures beyond our normal practices, such as wearing masks while serving. You can be seated at a table for 2 to remain socially distant or you can come with a group of friends to enjoy the experience together!

Space is limited so we can have enough distance between each table. In the event of inclement weather, we will move indoors to Gracie Hall, a spacious event space with double-height ceilings and equipped with an HVAC sterilization system.
