We are excited to have Chef Daniel Doyle as this year's Lead Chef for our Signature Chefs Auction. He will bring great leadership and the recruitment of the finest chefs, Charleston has to offer.Thank you, Chef Daniel!

As the Executive Chef of Charleston’s Poogan’s Porch, Chef Daniel Doyle takes a contemporary approach to traditional Lowcountry dishes. His experience and passion drives Doyle to be innovative in the kitchen of this established restaurant. Locally sourcing meat, produce and grains from Charleston and its surrounding areas is one big change that Doyle made when joining Poogan’s Porch. With each year, he works to refine the food and make the flavor profiles stronger. In 2012, Doyle became a partner at Poogan’s Porch. That same year he was invited to cook at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City, and asked to return in 2013 and again in September of 2014.


The Signature Chefs participating in the event, is what makes this event so amazing. Nowhere else can you have the best in culinary, all in one evening! A HUGE thank you to this year's Lead Chef, Anthony DiBernardo, Pitmaster and Owner of Swig & Swine. This year's panel of chefs is sure to be the best yet. Our chefs are artists, innovators and philanthropists, and we look forward to sharing their talents at the event. *Come back for more updates on participating chefs!
