As we look at the Gullah art and culture so should we look at their food also. 

 Here is a recipe for shrimp and grits which is mainstay of the Gullah people.  It is hard to find a restaurant in the Low Country of South Carolina that does not have some version of shrimp and grits-and yes, for breakfast too!
When I taught about the art of a specific culture with young children I wanted them to experience as much of the culture as possible; so I would bring in food for them to sample of the people or country we were studying. We would also listen to music and watch video about the culture as well.  By surrounding the children with visual, auditory, and sensory stimuli I could envelop in the world we wanted to learn about.  Some people learn visually and others experientially, the more ways of learning we offer children and adults, the more successful they will be.
