The south is known for its friendly accents, laid-back people, humid temperatures and feel good food. Incorporating food into a Hilton Head vacation is part of the Lowcountry experience. Southern food is just as much about the people as it is the recipes.The food culture dates back to agriculture, slavery and the multi cultural regions which have shaped what people now describe as comfort food. However, to truly enjoy southern cuisine, one must not fixate on calories and focus on taste and gratification. While here, indulge in bbq, shrimp n grits, Lowcountry Boil, fried okra and mac-n-cheese.
