Cigar Dinner 6/16/2023

The perfect father's day gift!

About this experience

Do you love cigars or are you interested in learning more about how they can pair perfectly with food? Join us for a dynamic duo of Chef Craig Kuhns and owner Chris of The Cigar Box. During the evening we will serve a 3 course meal paired with a different cigar and drink for each course. While you can't smoke inside, we will be doing a cold draw for each cigar which allows you to taste the difference and take each home to enjoy later!

Chef Craig Kuhns got his start over 25 years ago in Charleston, SC after graduating from Johnson & Wales University. As the Charleston food scene grew, Craig trained under mentor Chef Ken Vedrinski of Trattoria Lucca and gained a love for Italian cuisine and fine dining. He had the opportunity to work in some of Charleston's most acclaimed restaurants including The Charleston Grill, Palmetto Grill, and Charleston's Basil Thai Restaurant. Craig brought his knowledge to Upstate over ten years ago, where he had the great fortune to work for restaurant group Table 301 at The Lazy Goat, Nose Dive, Soby's and Devereaux's. Before embarking on The Cook’s Station adventure, Craig was the Chef de Cuisine at Top Soil in Travelers Rest, and prior to that, Craig was the Executive Chef at Greenbrier Farms in Easley, SC.
