  1. Absolutely obsessed with y’all! We watch all of the episodes of Quintessence over and over. Will there be any new ones soon? Come to Little River South Carolina. Hector and I are tastemakers (Executive Chef and Interior designer) and would love to entertain y’all! Looking forward to hearing back from you soon. Warm regards, Gerard and Hector

    • Well thank you so much! Yes, lots of new ones coming! I just took a little much needed vacation break after a tough COVID winter. New one coming a week from Saturday
