The first significant Gullah Geechee cookbook is written by "the matriarch of Edisto Island," who offers recipes and background information on a little-known American group. The Gullah and Geechee people have a long history dating back to a time when they were traditionally separated from the rest of the South due to their position on the Sea Islands of coastal South Carolina and Georgia as enslaved people. This Lowcountry neighborhood currently serves as the greatest tangible link to the traditional culture, language, and culinary practices of their West African ancestors.--Amazon.com.
