Bress 'n' Nyam: Gullah Geechee Recipes from a Sixth-Generation Farmer

"Bress 'n' nyam"--Gullah Geechee for "bless and eat"--is an invitation to the table and an introduction to the ancestral recipes of a sixth-generation farmer. Gullah Geechee food is an essential cuisine of America. It is the culinary representation of the ocean, rivers, and rich fertile loam in and around the coastal South, where descendants of enslaved Africans came together to make extraordinary food, speaking the African Creole language of Gullah Geechee. In this groundbreaking and beautiful cookbook, Matthew Raiford pays homage to the cuisine that nurtured his family for seven generations. Collected here are heritage and updated recipes that trace a history of community and family brought together by food.
