Heritage Series: Carolima’s Lowcountry Cuisine sisters’ share holiday dishes

Heritage Series: Carolima’s Lowcountry Cuisine sisters’ share holiday dishes

We are excited to share our new Heritage Series to celebrate the cultures of Black Southern Belle’s around the country. Our first series walks us inside the home of BSB founder Michiel Perry as she invites Sameka Jenkins, Founder, and Chef of Carolima’s Lowcountry Cuisine along with her sister Pastry Chef, Emma Cromedy. Together the Carolima’s Lowcountry Cuisine team whipped up dishes that represent their Gullah culture and passion for entertaining during the holidays.

Sameka and Emma chose to create their most beloved local dishes, appetizers, 14 Karat Cake, and Charleston Chewies. “We chose these dishes because they represent some of our favorite holiday memories,” says Sameka, “Charleston Chewies and 14 Karat cake are our most requested desserts.” However, key ingredients for the holidays are good food & good vibes to Sameka and Emma the holidays spending time with family and sharing food with the ones you love.

These Southern business owners make it their mission to have every customer feel like a member of the Carolima’s family, the same way they’ve been invited into their clients’ home and become family during every shared meal. “Being a part of the holiday customers’ festive day is very exciting for us,” says Emma, “whether it’s their first time having Carolima’s or if we are returning for another year, it’s a special time”.

Entertaining is a “favorite thing” for Emma and Sameka. They love inviting strangers over who leave as friends. “I absolutely love entertaining,” says Emma, “Our new home has an open floor plan that allows us to entertain many at one time.” Living in Charleston also means excellent weather all year round, so they say that Indoor and Outdoor entertainment is equally pleasurable.

Southerners connect with food, and Sameka admits, “Southerners love to eat! and having people over for a shared meal is a form of Southern hospitality.” When asked about hospitality, the Carolima’s team believes that it’s all about how you make people feel, there is nothing else like sharing your home and breaking bread together as a family.

Rest, organization, and preparing early are some of the Carolima’s Lowcountry Cuisine tips for a successful catering business in the holiday season. Owner Sameka says, “I try to get our holiday specials out by October. I set a number of how many orders we want to produce that will still allow us to enjoy the holidays with our family.” And with a smirk and laugh, Emma notes, “But rest up! It’s going to be a fun and crazy season!”
