Heritage Series: 11 Gullah Holiday Menu Ideas – Lowcountry Cuisine

If you’re looking for the perfect Lowcountry & Gullah inspired dishes for your holiday menu or any time of the year, look no further. Hallmarks of Lowcountry and Gullah food incorporates a mixture of culture, ingredients and traditions. Many dishes showcase foods grown and harvested in the coastal area, including shellfish, game, fish, grits, and rice. Our first Heritage Series chefs Sameka Jenkins and Emma Cromedy of Carolima’s Lowcountry Cuisine and Gina Willis of “What’s Gina Cooking?” cooked up these delicious dishes that inspired this menu. You can cook up variations of these 11 dishes at home or better yet have your dinner catered by Carolima’s Lowcountry Cuisine & “What’s Gina Cooking?”.
