About the name: The Winnow reflects the show's primary objective, which is to focus on the stuff that really matters. But it's also a tribute to Charleston's history of rice production: Fanner baskets, replicated in sweetgrass for visitors to buy as souvenirs, were originally designed to winnow rice grains.

Hanna Raskin is The Post and Courier’s food editor and chief critic; she also writes about regional food history and culture for Garden & Gun, Southern Living and Gravy.

In addition to contributing occasional features to The Post and Courier, Robert Moss is Southern Living's contributing barbecue editor and the Southern food correspondent for Serious Eats.
