I regularly get the privilege to sit down with highly experienced chefs and dig deep into their culinary roots. The best part? I have no idea what kind of personality will meet me on the other end of the line. Some are soft-spoken prodigies whose voices mostly come out through their food. Some are eccentric characters so immersed in the kitchen life that their first language is ingredients. And some are kind, heart-centered humans who—despite being globally-trained in both pastry and savory cuisine—are so humble and down-to-earth that when asked their favorite comfort food at the end of a long day, they readily answer with: “Hardee’s mushroom and Swiss burger!”

Lynn and Ken Binkley look at this past year as a blessing in disguise. After selling their home in less than eight hours, the two left cold Michigan for sunny Savannah Lakes Village on Lake Thurmond near McCormick, SC. The two cite the pandemic as the motivator for finally taking the plunge and diving into a new life.
South Carolina is famous for its waterfront golf destinations on the Atlantic coast, like Kiawah’s Ocean Course and Sea Pines’ Harbor Town Links. But a three-hour drive in- land through the countryside takes you to the state’s “Freshwater Coast” and a pair of lakeside gems named Tara and Monticello.
