TLP Staff Picks

The Local Palate crew's favorite picks!

Our office gets to work with some of the South's premier artisans and vendors, and we love sampling the products they share with us. Some of us have discovered a new honey to brighten bowls of yogurt in the morning, and others won't skip their daily lunch of a salad with specialty seasoned crackers crushed and crumbled over it.

Discover the honeys, mixers, snacks, and pantry ingredients we're leaning heavily on (both in the office and in our own home-cooking and entertaining adventures).

  • Charleston Favorites™ Charleston Benne Wafers

    Food for the Southern Soul Charleston Favorites™ Charleston Benne Wafers

    Forget everything that you think you know about delicious cookies and meet the quintessential Charleston Benne Wafer and the city’s signature sweet treat. There are few things that reflect the history of the city more than this simple cookie. Nix the chocolate chips and put away the vanilla extract. The Benne Wafer relies on tasty toasted sesame seeds for a distinct flavor that is all its own. There is a long culinary history in Charleston for this unique, crunchy, bite that you have to stop yourself from eating the whole container in one sitting. The height resembles that of a thin cracker and makes for the perfect vessel for other southern treats to rest on. You can eat them by themselves, serve them piled high with pimento cheese and chicken salad as an appetizer, or get creative and make bite-sized ice cream sandwiches for an unforgettable dessert in the summer! Incorporated into a snack that is either savory, sweet, or both, these wafers fit the bill and your guests won’t forget it. You will never get enough of this so make sure you get Charleston Benne Wafers 4 Pack for your supplies.Benne Wafers have been unique to the Lowcountry since the rich agricultural region was colonized in the 17th century. Benne — the Bantu word for sesame — was brought across the Atlantic from Africa and planted and cultivated extensively throughout the South on farms and plantations. Although a countless number of Lowcountry recipes and iconic dishes call for this nutty seed raw or toasted, none of them are as widely loved or recognized as the iconic Benne Wafer. Packaging: 6-ounce clear tub.
