Sallie Ann Robinson


Born on Daufuskie Island, off the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina, Sallie Ann Robinson was among the students taught by Pat Conroy when the famous author stayed for a time on her now famous island. Robinson has grown in her own right into the author of two celebrated cookbooks and an accomplished chef. 

Her culinary expertise has helped to preserve the food dishes for which her native island is famous and her work as a speaker nationwide, and as a tour guide on boat trips out of Savannah, Georgia, going to Daufuskie, have made her an authentic and much sought-after representative of Gullah culture.
