Sweet Success - Before securing her own Food Network show, Delicious Miss Brown, Kardea Brown worked in social services but found joy and inspiration in cooking the Gullah dishes she learned from her grandmother on Wadmalaw Island. Catch up with the dynamic Miss Brown on the eve of her Season 3 debut, filmed on Edisto Island.
Catch a Bite: “Ella and Ollie’s on Edisto Island has some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. My ultimate favorite is their BBQ Shrimp.”
Welcome Waggin’: “I travel often, so when I get the chance to spend time with my fur baby, Ginger, it’s so wonderful.”
Family Recipe: “My grandmother and my mother have had the biggest influence on my cooking. Family is such an important part of my life.”
Runner’s High: “I enjoy basically any outdoor activity, especially jogging. I recently ran over the Arthur Ravenel Bridge for the first time!”
Local Chops: “I would love the chance to work with chef Kevin Mitchell from the Culinary Institute of Charleston.”
