Coastal Living Food Awards: 2017

Winner: Big T Coastal Provisions Jalapeño Crab Dip

From the editors: "We scoured America’s shores, from Freeport, Maine, to the San Juan Islands, for the best food and drink on the market."

According to the judges: "Early in their relationship, Sullivan's Island, South Carolina, native Tony "Big T" Blanchard made wife Tracy ("little t") a batch of his mom's crab dip. The matchmaking appetizer became the couple's go-to party trick, and after years of friends saying, "You've gotta sell this," Tracy finally shared the family favorite with the rest of us ... combine equal parts beloved ancestral recipe and generous hunks of wild-caught crab and you have the formula for the ultimate sunset-watching app."

Southern Living Food Awards: 2015


Runner Up: Big T Coastal Provisions Shrimp Dip

From the editors: "We kicked off our three-day taste test by sampling nearly 60 jars of jams and jellies and ended with a side-by-side comparison of 46 different kinds of coffee. In between the sugar headaches and caffeine rushes, not only did we find the perfect pickle and the most refreshing summer beer, but also we discovered the stories of the people who make them. They all remind us that the best Southern recipes mix innovation with tradition."
