With the closures of Cypress and Artisan Meat Share, many longtime fans wondered what would become of chefs Craig Deihl and Bob Cook. Deihl told Charleston City Paper that he would be spending more time with family. As of yesterday, Cook had not announced his plans, but today, NoMo superstar Edmund’s Oast has claimed the chef.
Cook will replace Reid Henninger as executive chef at the charcuterie-heavy restaurant. In a press release, owner Scott Shor said, “Bob Cook has been a friend of the restaurant since its inception and we are excited about the talent and energy he will bring to the culinary program.”
Cook’s first day in his new kitchen will be Tuesday, June 6. Artisan Meat Share locks the doors on Sunday, June 4. At least Cook took one day off.
