ANNIVERSARYWIREMacaroon Boutique at 45 John St. celebrates their fourth anniversary on Sunday, April 13 and wants to share the joy by offering made-to-order profiteroles to customers. The cream puffs can be filled with choice of flavors upon request. The owners mused on offering coffee, vanilla, chocolate and caramel crèmes for filling choices. Pastries made right when you ask? C'est magnifique. [EaterWire]

SOFT SHELLS HERE—Charleston goes crazy for soft shell crabs and downtown farm-to-table spot The Grocery lists the delicacy on their menu tonight. As soon as the local water warms, the crabs molt, and are left with gentle exoskeletons—making their bodies almost completely edible. The season for softies is short, so connoisseurs know to grab them while they can. [Facebook]

EVENTWIRE—Charleston's own Matt and Ted Lee head to New York to help cater the James Beard Foundation Media Awards, but before they go, they're hosting a trial run of their fare. The Lee Brothers, along with event company Duvall's executive chef, Matt Greene, are perfecting their first course menu item on April 29, at 5:30 p.m. at the Midtown Kitchen (2816 Azalea Dr., North Charleston). The event is free and the wine is complimentary, so reserve a space today by emailing [EaterWire]

EVENTWIRE—Gullah-Geechee pop-up master Benjamin "BJ" Dennis, Le Creuset, and High Wire Distilling Co. team up for another one of Dennis' spectacular suppers on April 17 at 6:30 p.m. at L'Atelier de Le Creuset. Through an extensive menu of traditional dishes, Dennis will take guests on a history lesson as to why Gullah-Geechee culture is important to Charleston's current culinary state. There's an extensive list, but the "Florida Royal red shrimp and Stono river creek mussels, stewed in a Ambrose farms green garlic sauce" definitely stood out as a sure winner. The event is $50 a person and tickets can be reserved online. [Eventbrite]
