Years of Participation


"Descendants of West Africans enslaved in Lowcountry rice plantations, Ernest and Elizabeth Ross raised 11 children less than a block away from the busy intersection of Meeting and Calhoun Streets in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. At 5 Henrietta Street, there were 3 family homes, and  several generations of this lively Gullah Geechee family were raised there on fried fish, okra soup and the belief that “family always sticks together.” Ernest and Elizabeth’s daughters, Betty, Loraine, Geneva, and Natasha and their granddaughter Tia are honored to share some of their special family recipes with Charleston Wine and Food attendees this year."
