The space reveals the beauty and his- tory of old Charleston as the hotel chefs chart a new course for the future of Southern food. Chef Vinson Petrillo, a winner of Food Network's cooking competi- tion show "Chopped," stands at the heart of the kitchen school. Groups watch and ask questions as he prepares the dishes they get to enjoy as a multicourse meal with wine pairings. Beyond learning to replicate the menu, the Zero George experience is about learning techniques that carry across several dishes. "We're a Southern restaurant using Southern ingredients, but Petrillo doesn't view himself as a traditional Southern chef," said Zero George manager Kendall Moore. "He sees each individual ingredient and balances them off each other to create new dishes." Kendall said Petrillo finds the best meats and produce in Charles- ton and turns them into something a little different. "The big benefit to these classes is that you are going to learn to interact with ingredients in a different way," Kendall said. "You get to interact with someone who is creative and using modern techniques, and you're no longer trapped inside one recipe." W W W . Z E R O G E O R G E .
