Charleston’s own Kardea Brown is back on the Food Network with the third season of Delicious Miss Brown, debuting Saturday with an episode titled “Grilling out with the Girls.” 

After first appearing on the Food Network in 2015 on an episode of BBQ Blitz, Brown’s show Delicious Miss Brown was given the green light four years later, premiering July 28, 2019. 

During the show, Brown shares cherished family recipes and Southern traditions, hosting friends for dinner at her Edisto Island home. Season three features 13 new episodes airing Saturdays at 12 p.m.

“Of course the basis is the same — it’s all about food, family and life in the Lowcountry,” Brown said. “This will be my first season that leads into the holidays, so we’ll be featuring Thanksgiving and Christmas dishes.” 

Brown said she always serves Southern and Gullah-Geechee staples for the holidays, and she’s excited to share some special dishes she grew up eating in Charleston. 

“I’m doing an oyster stuffing which is really popular in my family,” she said. “I’m also doing some traditional Gullah dishes like sweet potato pone, which is basically just a sweet potato pie minus the crust.” 

Brown, who is of Gullah-Geechee descent, said this season will feature more traditional classics.

“This season, I aimed to talk a little more about the Gullah-Geechee cuisine and try to give people a history lesson,” she said. “Bridging the gap, talking about that and shining the light on the heritage.”  

Episode one celebrates the end of summer with Brown’s take on jerk chicken, sweet and savory corn and baked beans, which she serves for her friends during a Labor Day cookout.

It’s been a busy 13 months for Brown, but she said she wouldn’t have it any other way. 

“It’s been a fun ride. Doing this doesn’t feel like work,” she said. “I’ve worked tirelessly to secure my own show on the network and to be able to do three seasons in just over a year is an incredible feeling.”
