ABOUT KARDEA BROWN

Brown, host of Food Network’s Delicious Miss Brown, currently in its 6th season and judge on the network’s Spring Baking Championship is a contemporary Southern cook born in Charleston, South Carolina. She is of Gullah/Geechee descent, a term used to describe a distinct group of African Americans living in the coastal areas of South Carolina and Georgia who have managed to preserve much of their West African language, culture, and cuisine. Her love for cooking started in her grandmother’s kitchen, learning to cook Gullah dishes that were passed down from her mother. Although she loved cooking as a hobby, Kardea did not envision herself pursuing a career in the culinary field. Instead, she obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology and embarked on a career in social services. But in 2013, she switched gears and began to pursue cooking. She created The New Gullah Supper Club, traveling from state to state cooking traditional Gullah dishes with a contemporary twist. Kardea has since made dozens of guest television appearances on shows such as Good Morning America, The TODAY Show, as well as Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay, Chopped and The Kitchen, among many others.
