Passed down from generation to generation, local cuisine has always been a defining feature of the heritage of the Sea Islands.
To celebrate this heritage, Sea Islands Cooking gathered together one of the key ingredients that makes our sea islands so great --
the special recipes from Johns,Kiawah, Seabrook and Wadmalaw islands!

Regardless of age, race, religion or creed, food brings folks together. To help us celebrate cooking throughout the community, in 2011, Sea Islands Cooking published a book of sea island recipes. This cookbook includes recipes from adults and children from all four islands. The book was sold through Communities in Schools and proceeds from the sales of the book directly benefited St. John’s High School, Haut Gap Middle School,
Angel Oak Elementary School, Mt Zion Elementary School and Edith Frierson Elementary School.

The book includes over 200 recipes from all four Sea Islands, divided into nine different categories. Categories include breakfast,
entrees, appetizers, soups and sandwiches, salads and sides, breads, desserts, sauces and beverages.

Communities In Schools of the Charleston Area, Inc. addresses the local dropout crisis by surrounding more than 7,400 at-risk children
and their families with a community of support that empowers students to stay in school and achieve in life.

We hope you enjoy Sea Islands Cooking!
