The King of Grit
Chef Robert Stehling of Hominy Grill, Charleston SC -- James Beard Award winner, man of many faces, and to me, sort of an anti-chef - or maybe a chef's chef. After shooting Robert and some his food the other day I sat down for a bite to eat. I have to admit it had been a while since I had dined at Hominy Grill in spite of the tremendous press that the restaurant gets that puts it at the top of any "must eat" place in Charleston. What Robert does at Hominy Grill seems so effortless, so easy, so simple and good -- and real. No fluff, no puff, and always right on -- just like Robert. We shot some beautiful stuff -- here's an out-take that I like and that I figured wouldn't find its way into the foody mags.
