Who was Allison Smith?
Allison Smith was a Charleston native who was no stranger to international cuisine. Allison began her culinary career in high school and culinary school, working her way through Charleston eateries ranging from bakeries to fine dining. Allison was anxious to make her mark in the culinary arena after graduating from The Culinary School of Charleston.
She established Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts in the centre of downtown Charleston at the age of 22. Glazed was quickly recognized internationally and as one of America’s greatest doughnut shops in numerous magazines and TV shows. Allison worked in Europe and travelled as much as she could before starting Glazed to learn about other cuisines.
She didn’t grasp the necessity and need for Indian culture and food in Charleston until she married into an Indian family and travelled to India. Allison realized she wanted to bring Indian food to Charleston after her first trip to India in 2010. She opened Sambar Indian Restaurant in Workshop in 2017 as a temporary eatery after multiple visits and with the assistance of her mother-in-law. Sambar is now a pop-up restaurant, while Glazed, Charleston’s first gourmet doughnut shop, is still open.
