Bert and T's Desserts
Named for the chef/owner’s grandmas Bertha and Eutellia, this soul bakery and creamery specializes in heirloom desserts and ice creams that have been passed down through the generations. With a menu filled with classic Southern desserts special to the Charleston, SC, region, they’re preserving Gullah recipes and culture one cobbler, bread pudding, and Charleston Chewy at a time.
Combining classical cooking techniques with traditional Gullah Geechee recipes and foodways, The Carolina Cookery is home to a style that head chef Rashaunda Grant calls “Southern Soul Reimagined.” Her goal for the restaurant is to ultimately be a hub of cultural preservation, community, and exchange – somewhere people can go to learn about the rich culture of the Lowcountry and a platform for people from all cultures and walks of life to share their own stories and recipes.
My Three Sons of Charleston
Owned and operated by Lorraine “Mama” Smalls and Antwan “Cake Daddy” Smalls, this Charleston, South Carolina, eatery is named for the couple’s three sons. And the love they have for their family comes through in the menu: classic soul food with a regional Gullah flair that includes catfish, crunchy fried chicken, tender oxtail, and a dessert menu to write home about. People often say being at My Three Sons reminds them of being at Grandma’s house.
