A Dining Guide to Carolina Gold Rice

In the world of food, Carolina Gold rice is the ultimate comeback story. Once the cash crop upon which much of Charleston was built, it was on the verge of disappearing until heirloom grain pioneers such as Glenn Roberts of Anson Mills brought the forgotten staple back to life. Today, chefs from Brooklyn to LA covet its sweet, aromatic flavor and rich texture—but Charleston remains the hub of Carolina Gold’s revival. Below, our go-to guide for where to taste it, and what to wear when you go.
