About Kardea Brown

Kardea Brown is a chef, author, and host of Delicious Miss Brown, one of the most successful shows on the Food Network. She was born in Charleston, South Carolina, and spent much of her childhood on Wadmalaw Island, where she grew up learning Gullah Geechee recipes and traditions from her mother and grandmother. She moved to New Jersey to pursue a career in social work, but when the Food Network saw a video of her cooking, everything changed. She quit her job, moved back to Charleston, launched a traveling Gullah supper club, and after a few years of hard work and determination, eventually landed her own TV show. On this episode, we’ll chat about some of her favorite recipes, what she loves most about her mother’s cooking, and why she wrote her terrific new cookbook, The Way Home: A Celebration of Sea Islands Food and Family.

Quotes from Kardea

“It’s so hard to describe something that was so beautiful. My childhood literally was spent barefoot running in sand and being very close to water and eating very fresh vegetation right out of the garden patch, eating okra right out of the okra fields. We have a very large family on Wadmalaw Island, and so I grew up very closely to my cousins who are actually all around the same age. We grew up just hanging out on the island, beach days in the summertime. I just remember all of the beautiful things of just being in the lowcountry. I also remember the muggy day, and being so close to family and enjoying seafood.”

“I know what keeps me going is that this is my purpose. You know, it’s the reason why I feel that I’m here because not only am I cooking and doing what I love, I’m also preserving my culture.”

“Being Southern is just, it’s a sense of pride. I really feel like Southern cuisine, and Southern culture is the fabric of American culture. And being a Southern woman on top of that, it’s pretty cool.”
