Savannah Getaways is pleased to announce private chef services inside your own upscale Savannah Historic District Town Home with your own personal chef, cooking star Sallie Ann Robinson. Sallie Ann is an accomplished chef specializing in the very best Lowcountry fare to be found in the Gullah tradition that she was raised on. Our Savannah based celebrity chef, television personality, and cookbook author Ms. Robinson is a sixth-generation native of Daufuskie Island, South Carolina. She is renowned for her culinary expertise, entertaining presentations, and knowledge of southeastern United States Gullah culture.
Robinson has maintained a notable presence on national television and in popular magazines for more than a decade. Her television appearances have been many and include the December 2008 pilot for Georgia Public Broadcasting’s Dixie Divas in the Kitchen. She has also made guest appearances on such noted programs as The QVC Show, The 700 Club, CN8’s Your Morning Show, and The Food Network.
In addition to her high visibility as a recognized television personality, Robinson has been a frequent favorite subject of magazine and newspaper journalists. Some have profiled her as an author while others have focused on her ongoing efforts to preserve the legacy of Gullah culture. Ironically, Robinson first attained national prominence as a character named Ethel, one of only fourteen students that studied under Conroy on that well documented year portrayed in famed author Pat Conroy’s novel, The Water Is Wide. Since its publication in 1972, the novel has inspired stage adaptations as well as two major movie productions, all of them helping to introduce the world to Robinson via her fictional alter ego.
To customize your own in house cooking experience, be it an exquisitely catered meal or your very own personal chef school, call our reservation desk or contact Sallie Ann Robinson directly and we will hook you up with Ms. Robinson herself. Come to Savannah and take the Foody Tour with Hollywood Ron and return home later that night for very own taste of the south experience prepared by Ms. Robinson in Keeping with that whole Southern Culinary Arts Thingy!
