My friend Matt Lee and his brother Ted, widely known as The Lee Bros, are not only award-winning food, cookbook and travel writers, but also terrific cooks and passionate advocates of Charleston’s fabled food culture. On top of all this, they also run a mail-order boiled peanut catalogue, and they'll ship the Southern treat around the world to anyone in-the-know who may have a hankering. While I was spending time in Charleston shooting Top Chef Season 14, it was only fitting that I looked to Matt to enlighten me on how to cook, eat and enjoy this regional specialty. Our boiled peanut adventure led us from farm to roadside Airstream in search of the perfect nut.
