Gullah Tastemaker and Advocate Bridging Food & Advocacy in Bluffton, SC

Gullah Tastemaker and Advocate Bridging Food & Advocacy in Bluffton, SC

The preservation of culture is exactly where business owner & Councilwoman Bridgett Fraizer gets her inspiration from.  This Gullah Tastemaker and Advocate is bridging food & advocacy in Bluffton, SC continuing her family’s legacy of entrepreneurship, food heritage preservation and civic engagement.

Bridgette Frazier

Bridgette Fraizer, the owner of the food truck Chef B’s Eatz and owner of the restaurant Ma Daisy’s Kitchen, has been inspired to keep black southern cuisine alive because she has been immersed in southern foods since she was a child. Her father, Oscar Frazier, owned the Blufton BBQ Little Red Caboose, and Bridgette Fraizer is following in his footsteps.

The Fraizer family understands the importance of homemade food and hospitality when dining in their facilities, and Bridgett is keeping the legacy going. When interviewing Ms. Frazier, we learned that she loves okras, and this is one food item that she cannot live without. So we can only imagine that growing up steeped in the rich food heritage of Gullah culture, Bridgette would continue the legacy of her father, by being the owner of a restaurant in her hometown. Based in Bluffton, just like her father’s restaurant, Ma’ Daisy ‘s Porch is a must-try and an anticipated food opening in the Lowcountry that will be sure to draw lines of supporters who will come there for great food but most importantly leave with having a better understanding of the contributions of Gullah culture to the local community.

Gullah cuisine is a hallmark of the Lowcountry and quite frankly the backbone of so much of it growth and admiration which puts it at the intersection of economics and industry. Just like so many in her family before her, Bridgette is connecting the dots of economic empowerment and preserving Gullah culture in her other day job as a member of the Bluffton Town Council. . Bridgette Frazier has been a member of the the Town Council since 2020 while also serving as an English teacher in Beaufort County public schools, and the president of the Bluffton Martin Luther King Observance Committee. All of these roles fit squarely into her mission of empowering her community and creating the next generation of Gullah leadership. If you can’t find Bridgett Fraizer in the kitchen, then you can surely find her in the community or in her home office filled with Black Art and buzzing with her next endeavor that we can only wait to see.

Bridget Fraizer is a Lowcountry native with priorities focusing primarily on preserving our culture and ensuring all of us do so as well. If you are ever handling business with Bridgette Fraizer or seeing her on the go to meet with other Councilmembers, you can be sure to find her enjoying the Lowcountry norms of Williams Seafood of Walterboro & appreciating the culture that has been created in the South.
