Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
"If there's one thing we learned coming up on Daufuskie," remembers Sallie Ann Robinson, "it's the importance of good, home-cooked food." In this enchanting book, Robinson presents the delicious, robust dishes of her native Sea Islands and offers readers a taste of the unique, West African-influenced Gullah culture still found there.

Living on a South Carolina island accessible only by boat, Daufuskie folk have traditionally relied on the bounty of fresh ingredients found on the land and in the waters that surround them. The one hundred home-style dishes presented here include salads and side dishes, seafood, meat and game, rice, quick meals, breads, and desserts. Gregory Wrenn Smith's photographs evoke the sights and tastes of Daufuskie.

"Here are my family's recipes," writes Robinson, weaving warm memories of the people who made and loved these dishes and clear instructions for preparing them. She invites readers to share in the joys of Gullah home cooking the Daufuskie way, to make her family's recipes their own.

About the author

Biography of Conroy, Pat

Donald Patrick Conroy's pen name is Pat Conroy. He was born on October 26, 1945, in Atlanta, Georgia. He graduated from The Citadel in 1967 with B.A. in English. He later used his experiences at the strict school in his book, The Lords of Discipline (1980), which was nominated for the Robert Kennedy Book Award in 1981. After teaching high school at his alma mater, he accepted a job teaching disadvantaged black children in a two-room schoolhouse on Daufuskie Island off the South Carolina coast.

Many of the children were illiterate, unable even to write their own names. He taught them using oral history and geography lessons. His experience on Daufuskie Island formed the basis for his first successful novel The Water Is Wide (1972), which won Conroy the Anisfield-Wolf Award from the Cleveland Foundation and was made into the movie Conrack starring Jon Voight in 1976. His other novels include The Great Santini, The Prince of Tides, Beach Music, and South of Broad.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2003-03-15)

Robinson grew up on Daufuskie Island, off the coast of South Carolina, which Pat Conroy wrote about in The Water Is Wide. In fact, she was one of his students in that two-room schoolhouse some 30 years ago. With Smith, Robinson recalls growing up on this isolated island, where her hardworking mother and father struggled to raise their 12 children. But her memories are of a happy childhood and a strong, supportive family, not of deprivation ("We didn't always have a lot, but we always had enough", she says). Meals depended on what there was in the garden, the ocean waters, and the farmyard, and they were simple but tasty: Hand-Picked Cucumber and Tomato Salad, Pop's Smuttered Mullet, Down-Home Chitlins.

Robinson's stories come from another era (the map of Daufuskie today shows that much of the island has been taken over by gated communities for rich people from the mainland, and only a few natives still live there), and her memoir provides a warm, touching account of a time gone by. For area libraries and most collections on regional American fare.
