Real Lowcountry Food!! SHRIMP & GRITS - Gullah Geechee Food in Southern USA!

ST. HELENA ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA - Today we’re visiting St. Helena in South Carolina, an island that’s preserved much of its Gullah Geechee and Lowcountry heritage, culture and food. We have the honor of meeting up with Tony and Belinda Jones from Morning Glory Homestead -

to learn about Gullah Geechee history and cook a full farm to table southern USA, lowcountry meal. On the menu is one of the greatest dishes of all time, shrimp and okra, with local grits, rice, and fried whiting fish. We picked our own okra from the farm, and cooked everything fresh Gullah Geechee style under the sweeping live oak trees. Thank you again to Tony and Belinda Jones from Morning Glory Homestead -

for hosting me for this incredible Gullah Geechee food and cultural experience in South Carolina."
