Mama Doonk’s Gullah Recipes .

Theresa Jenkins Hilliard spent her early childhood under the guardianship of her beloved grandmother, Mama Doonk, on Edisto Island, SC. She began learning how to cook when she was very young under her grandmother's tutelage. She has prepared Gullah cuisine for her family and friends for the past sixty years. What began as a scrapbook of recipes for her children culminated into Mama Doonk's Gullah Recipes Book named for her grandmother. Theresa began to cook meals at a young age under the watchful eyes of her grandmother. Her early meals were prepared on the family's wood-burning stove. She later moved to Charleston, SC to live with her mother, who cooked for a wealthy South of Broad Street Charleston family. Theresa's cooking skills would continue to grow under her mother's tutelage. When her mother later became disabled, Theresa became the main cook for the family, which expanded her cooking skills. Food was always the focal point of every celebration. No matter the occasion, food was a part of it. Theresa always prepared the celebratory meals, which always included Gullah food. This book included dishes prepared by her grandmother, her mother and her aunt, as well as some of Theresa's favorite dishes that she has prepared during the years. You will find her grandmother's rabbit, opossum, and raccoon stew, shrimp and grits, corn fritters, okra soup, and mouthwatering homemade biscuits. She includes her mother's corn muffins and roast duck, as well as, her Aunt Edna's, squash casserole and easy pound cake. Her ancestors were all great cooks. This book gives you a glimpse of history when most of the food were from the land, sea, wood, fields and trees, long before all of the modern conveniences of store bought food. Their food was literally from the field to the plate long before it became popular. Theresa adds some antidotes that will make you chuckle as you reminisce. Take a step back in time with her. It will jog the memory of some and give others a peek into the past. Hunna en had good eatin' 'til ya' grease ya' mouf' wid Gullah food. (You haven't had good eating until you've eaten Gullah food).
