Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Gullah are the hardscrabble South Carolina Low Country descendants of plantation slaves, and their meals reveal African, Jamaican and Caribbean influences. Robinson was raised on Daufuskie Island, an isolated Gullah bastion near Hilton Head. She combines a memoir of growing up with her nine siblings and down-to-earth recipes to cover each meal of the day. Most of her remembrances involve chores and the fertile life of the island, though she also includes a fine chapter on Folk Beliefs and Home Remedies, where we learn that ear cleaning should be done with a hen's feather (never a rooster's) and that a handful of spider web makes for an excellent bandage. As for the recipes, each could be filed under one or more of the three S's: simple, soul food or seafood. For breakfast, there is Country Fried Fish with Grits. Lunchtime sandwiches include Fried Soft-Shell Crab, which could be paired with 'Fuskie Seafood Gumbo with a stock made from fatback bacon and pig tail. Dinner entrees come stuffed, like Flounder Full of Crabmeat, which can be grilled or steamed. All the dishes can be washed down with one of her seven homemade wines, which generally involve adding five pounds of sugar to five pounds of fruit (like persimmons or peaches) and a gallon of water.

"Robinson's stories come from another era . . . Her memoir provides a warm, touching account of a time gone by." -- Library Journal

"The recipes take full advantage of treasures of the sea, abundant fresh vegetables and game of the rich, moist land." -- Black Issues Book Review

I can't decide what I like better, the mouth watering recipes or the delightful stories. Sallie Ann brings to life a rich culture and community so rare and fast fading. Fortunately, even today on Daufuskie slave descendents own vast tracts of land, the First Union African Baptist Church conducts worship each Sunday, roaming chickens cluck alongside goats, and dozens of original Gullah cottages remain (some with haint blue trim to scare away spirits). If you can't experience this island first hand, at least find yourself a favorite recipe and sit out on the front porch to enjoy it and one of Sallie Ann's stories!

This is a great cook book. The thing that I really enjoy is that it is written by a woman who has lived the Gullah experience rather than by others who have only observed it.

If you have seen the movie or read the book, THE HELP, then you will know how I was raised from the time of my birth in 1946 until my "Mother of Color" left to nurse younger children, in 1956. She woke me in the morning with kisses and put me to bed with wonderful Gullah stories. My first language was Gullah, and I still speak it. For my parents part, they knew they had a gem in this wonderful woman, and compensated her well for her nursing efforts (I have seen the ancient, fading cashed checks).

This book is a wonder of fabulous memories of foods, all of which I have eaten. I especially remember the poor man's bread which I used to beg Willie Mae to make. Now understand, this is not a Julia Child endeavor - it is a work of art. But you will come away will a visceral understanding of both the historical and culinary in-breathing that surrounds the island that can only be reached by boat.
