Gullah Cookin'

CC Note: Recently, one of our staff members spent some time digging around in the sand and looking for local fare in the lowcountry. This food style was definitely one of our favorites.

It was a sign I've never seen. Handpainted in big bold letters--"Gullah Cooking." Just what is gullah cooking? Match that up with the bright pink building and the delicious aroma wafting out and up to the street, and it's heaven on earth on Edisto Island.

The Gullah people are descendants from the slave times of old and mainly reside in the lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia today. Many of the old customs and language have been passed down from generation to generation.

Experience Gullah cookin' and you'll treat your tastebuds to dishes chock full of flavor with rice, shrimp, crabs and other delectable dishes of the region.

Our favorite dishes of this cooking style? Why, it's the Shrimp and Grits with a big side of fresh fried okra and green tomatoes. We also found the She-Crab Soup to be an excellent taste treat.

Need a restaurant to go and visit? Try the Gullah Cuisine located in Mt. Pleasant, SC. You won't be disappointed.
