Best Cycling and Eating Combo

Laurent Gras and Ken Vedrinski Pedal in the Jerry Zucker Ride for Hope

Staff Pick

After riding with former Olympian and world champion cyclist George Hincapie in a 100K bike ride to raise money for cancer, former L20 Chef Laurent Gras joined Chef Ken Vedrinski in his kitchen at Trattoria Lucca to prepare a four-course dinner last fall. The collaboration came after the two were featured in a Food and Wine story on the fittest chefs in America. Both being cyclists, Vedrinski thought he'd invite the Chicago-based Gras to town by telling him he'd get a chance to meet and ride with Hincapie. It worked, and Charleston got a chance to experience top chefs without having to leave the comfort of their hometown. We love it when that happens.
