Award Winning Chefs at The Cliffs

Seven Private Communities with an Incredible Foodie Scene

When it comes to culinary scenes, few master planned communities have more to offer than The Cliffs in the Carolinas according to Real Estate Scorecard, an online real estate review website monitoring almost 400 master planned communities in the Southeast. With award winning chefs, delectable farm-to-table menus, and a variety of dining options, The Cliffs is by far one of America's most delicious foodie communities Real Estate Scorecard has ever seen. In addition to their mainstay establishments, like the Carolina Smokehouse at Keowee Springs and the Taproom at Keowee Falls, The Cliffs hosts a number of annual food and wine themed events.

With such a wonderful culinary culture and so many health and wellness amenities that go hand in hand, The Cliffs is hard to beat for folks who love food and wine. The seven communities located within a 100-mile radius are seven ideal places to live in the south for those who enjoy sensational cuisine, a friendly social scene and thrive on enjoying the great outdoors. The seven communities are perfectly located. One is in Asheville and the other six are nearby, on the ridge line of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the foothills and on Lake Keowee.

The hip culinary culture at The Cliffs may be due to the community's rising star, Sous Chef Edwin Bloodworth of The Cliffs at Walnut Cove. Chef Edwin was recently named one of the industry's Rising Stars by Full-Service Restaurants Magazine. The young Bloodworth has experience with elite chefs throughout America, as well as at the famed AAA Four Diamond-rated Gamekeeper Restaurant in Blowing Rock. For the menu at The Cliffs at Walnut Cove, he innovates with classic and contemporary dishes such as Duck Breast, Vegetable Tagine, and Heritage Farm Pork Loin.

Confirming the culinary status of the masters at The Cliffs, is their recent win in the regional Competition Dining Series. In the culinary competition, The Cliffs team beat out 14 competing teams, and was named the champion of the Greenville Series. The winning team included The Cliffs’ own Executive Sous Chef Todd Warden, along with teammates Kevin Furmanek, Executive Chef of The Cliffs at Mountain Park, and Scott Denomme, Sous Chef of The Cliffs Valley. To sample some of their delicious dishes, folks can catch them at IMBIBE: The Cliffs Wine and Food Festival, one of South Carolina's best food and wine festivals (at The Cliffs September 23 - Ocobter 2) or during a property tour of The Cliffs.

When it comes to wine, The Cliffs takes pride in its knack for fine wines. Apart from the food and wine festivals, wine plays a hearty role in the community's culture. Led by Certified Sommelier Eric Cooperman, The Cliffs has curated a collection of hundreds of impressive bottles, many of them made available to members through The Cliffs Wine Consortium where each week a featured wine is sold at an exclusive price just for Cliffs Members. Residents and guests can even take a class or workshop tasting, to discover rare or little-known varieties of wine.

And if the delicious food 365 days a year isn't enough to tempt folks, there are dozens of other reasons why folks love the living at The Cliffs. What makes The Cliffs one of America's ideal places to live is it has seven lake and mountain communities, each with its own appeal. A member of one community, is a member of all seven communities.
