In this special live episode, our hosts Kathy Kingsley and Erin Dubuque sit down with Chef BJ Dennis to talk about Gullah-Geechee cuisine, his culinary roots and his new ventures, including brewing beer.

We recorded this special episode before a live audience at the Charleston Wine + Food Festival offices.

Our guest, Chef B.J. Dennis, is well-known for his pop-up dinners with Butcher & Bee in Charleston, where he spotlights Gullah-Geechee cuisine. In 2016, Chef B.J. appeared in an episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking. Here’s a little more about his background: https://www.finecooking.com/chef/b-j-dennis.

Chef B.J. mentions Charleston Receipts, a classic Southern cookbook first published in 1950—in fact, the country’s oldest Junior League cookbook still in print. It’s a fascinating read for anyone interested in the culinary history of South Carolina.
