About Chef Kardea Brown:

Kardea Brown is a contemporary Gullah Chef from Charleston, South Carolina. Kardea’s family is from Wadmalaw Island, a small island off the coast of Charleston. They are proud to be of Gullah/Geechee descent, preserving much of their West African language, culture, and cuisine. Kardea believes that the food and traditions she grew up with should be shared. She has created The New Gullah Supper Club, traveling from state to state cooking traditional Gullah dishes with a contemporary twist. Kardea has visited various cities across America and has fed hundreds of hungry and happy diners. The menus pay homage to the dishes her Grandmother passed down to her while incorporating ingredients that are unique to that particular city. Kardea is on a mission to spread love and understanding through food and tell her unique story.
