Sallie Ann Robinson was born and reared on Daufuskie Island, one of he South Carolina Sea Islands well-known for their West African - influenced Gullah cuisine. Although technology and development was slow in coming to Daufuskie the island is now changing rapidly. With this book, Robinson highlights some of her favorite memories and delicious recipes from life on Daufuskie, where the islanders traditionally ate what they grew in the soil, caught in the river, and hunted in the woods.
Reflecting the rhythm of a day in the kitchen, this cookbook collects seventy-five recipes for easy-to-prepare, robustly-flavored dishes. It also features twenty-five folk remedies, demonstrating how in the Gullah culture, in the not-so-distant past, food and medicine were closely linked and the sea and the land provided what islanders needed to survive.
Sallie Ann Robinson is author of Gullah Home Cooking the Daufuskie Way. She now makes her home in Savannah, Georgia.
