Lowcountry Bistro’s Chef Matt Paul to Compete in First Annual Charleston
Shrimp & Grits Competition


Chef Paul Goes Head-to-Head with Other Local Chefs on August 30


Matthew has been in the Lowcountry for over 12 years. Originally from Pennsylvania, Paul made his way down south to pursue his culinary dreams.  A graduate of Johnson and Wales in 2002, Chef Paul has worked in many Lowcountry restaurants as well as having done wedding and personal chef catering events around the area. He is trained in utilizing local seafood and farm fresh ingredients in all his meals to give you a classic Lowcountry meal.

CharlestonSC– Shrimp and Grits: It’s a Charleston staple, and one that Lowcountry Bistro’s Chef Matt Paul has perfected over time. On August 30, 2014, Chef Paul will get the opportunity to showcase his famed recipe at the First Annual Shrimp and Grits Charleston, a chef’s competition benefiting the Charleston Animal Society. “It’s truly an honor to be competing against some of Charleston’s most renowned chefs for a great local cause,” said Chef Paul.  Just like the classic dish available on Lowcountry Bistro’s menu, Chef Paul’s Shrimp & Grits dish will be made with grilled jumbo shrimp, parmesan and chive grits, and a smoked tomato and bacon sauce.


Shrimp and Grits Charleston will take place on Saturday, August 30 from 7-10pm at the Charleston Visitor’s Center. In addition to the chef’s competition, the event will also feature live music, sponsor booths, and cookbook signings. Tickets are now available to purchase online for $30, and will be available at the door for $35. Tickets for children 12 and under are also available for $12.
