“Bress ‘n’ nyam means ‘bless and eat’ in the Gullah language, and Raiford’s book is both a celebration of his homecoming and an introduction to Gullah Geechee culture and cuisine.
More than 100 heirloom recipes from a dynamic chef and farmer working the lands of his great-great-great grandfather.From Hot Buttermilk Biscuits and Sweet Potato Pie to Salmon Cakes on Pepper Rice and Gullah Fish Stew, Gullah Geechee food is an essential cuisine of American history. It is the culinary representation of the ocean, rivers, and rich fertile loam in and around the coastal South. From the Carolinas to Georgia and Florida, this is where descendants of enslaved Africans came together to make extraordinary food, speaking the African Creole language called Gullah Geechee. In this groundbreaking and beautiful cookbook, Matthew Raiford pays homage to this cuisine that nurtured his family for seven generations.

Matthew will be signing his cookbook immediately after the cooking demo at the “Celebrity Author’s Signing Table”
