How Gullah Cuisine Has Transformed Charleston Dining – Eater


Please enjoy this incredibly well written piece by Hillary Dixler synthesizing so many elements of the stories, struggles and triumphs of the Gullah-Geechee presence in the culinary scene of Charleston and beyond. Me and my good friend master Gullah Chef BJ Dennis get a lot of coverage in this piece, but more importantly it’s fair and it’s accurate in expressing the messages we want to come across to a wider audience. I’m so thankful for this piece.

  1. Great share! I recently went to Charleston and took a Gullah tour. I learned a LOT. I feel like not many people know about or discuss the history of Charleston.
