Charlotte Jenkins has been cooking since she was 9 and opened Gullah Cuisine in 1997. She is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University and also operates a successful catering company. Her cookbook Gullah Cuisine is one of our favorites on the topic and features the artwork of the famed Gullah artist Jonathan Green. At Gullah Cuisine, the atmosphere is very festive and caters to a lot of large groups. They feature a large buffet filled with fresh foods that are replenished often. Specialty items on the menu also include the Gullah shrimp boil, Awendaw fish head stew, gator tails, crab balls, and lots of meats and seafood. Gullah Cuisine is one of the only places with salads and they serve brunch on Sundays. They also have a kids' menu, which offers standard items but is a nice option to have. Best of all, Miss Jenkins will teach you how to cook with her series of cooking classes she offers that includes dinner served to you after you take a class.
