Sample the rich flavors of Lowcountry cuisine and Madeira wine in Savannah

From gumbo and she-crab soup to Country Captain, Frogmore Stew, chicken bog, Kedgeree and Hoppin’ John, the Lowcountry cuisine of the Georgia and Carolina coasts tempts with rich concoctions featuring seafood, rice, spices and tons of flavor. In Savannah, enjoy a hands-on culinary demonstration and lunch featuring Low Country cuisine – as well as a taste of the city’s beloved Madeira traditions.
