They’ve posted a couple of older videos about Geechee Girl and Valerie. If you missed them, you can look at them here. And the website has a feature where you can upload any photos you have of Geechee Girl.
Geechee Girl was filmed for the Food Network hit show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with host Guy Fieri. We are thrilled to have been chosen and it was a great experience. And for anyone who’s wondering, Guy is just as nice and just as much fun as he seems on TV. Geechee Girl wants to give a shout out and a thank you to the great customers who agreed to appear on camera

Geechee Girl Rice Cafe
Valerie Erwin’s tribute to Low Country cuisine at her “humble” but “cute” Germantown BYO might be “Philly’s best claim to be part of the Carolinas”, as the reasonably priced, “down-home” fare comes with a side of “Southern hospitality”

Saturday Brunch Party
Geechee (pronounced with a hard “G”) was one name for the enslaved West African peoples who lived on the Sea Islands and coastal areas of the Carolinas, Georgia and Northern Florida. The Africans who were brought to South Carolina lived on West Africa’s rice coast and were expert in rice cultivation.
Much of the success of the Sea Islands’ early rice industry can be attributed to a black rush basket called the fanner that was developed by the Geechee people. The fanner was used to toss (fan) threshed rice into the air to allow the wind to carry off the chaff
Today, Chef Valerie Erwin builds upon traditional southern rice delicacies with world influences. Come sample Geechee Girl’s delights when you visit Philadelphia!
