ORIGINAL SC | Gullah Chef Sallie Ann Robinson

March 8, 2017 - Posted in Local by Tabitha Safdi

If you asked Sallie Ann Robinson her purpose in life, she would answer, "To make everyone happy through food." Robinson, a sixth-generation native of Daufuskie Island, is a celebrity chef, television personality, and authority on Gullah tradition.

As the author of two cookbooks, she is renowned for her culinary expertise and knowledge of the Southeastern United States Gullah culture.

In author Pat Conroy’s 1972 novel, The Water is Wide, a reminiscence of his year spent teaching 5th through 8th grades in Daufuskie Island’s tiny schoolhouse, Robinson, a student, is remembered as “Ethel.”

When she is not cooking, she is caring for elder folks, giving lots of TLC, and sharing stories.
