Taste of Gullah Geechee

Taste of Gullah Geechee

 

 

Lets kickoff Black History Month with a celebration of Gullah culture! Taste of Gullah Geechee is an event based on the culture of the two founding sisters Emma’ Cromedy and Sameka Jenkins. The dishes are inspired by the African roots of the people in the Gullah Geechee region. The inspiration for Taste of Gullah Geechee comes from a desire to share the culture from their childhood with a focus on the foods they grew up eating. 

 

Gullah dishes often include rice, okra, seafood, and any meats that weren’t desired or passed on, that they made into a delicacy. They often made something out of nothing.
