In 2003, the University of North Carolina Press published Robinson’s first book, Gullah Home Cooking the Daufuskie Way.

The book successfully combined sea island recipes with personal memoir and drew critical praise from diverse reviewers. Publication of her second cookbook, Cooking the Gullah Way, Morning, Noon, and Night, followed in 2007. Once again, critics and readers alike praised the author for the storytelling quality of memoir in the book, the authenticity of the recipes, and the tasty results achieved when trying them. Her third cookbook, Sallie Ann Robinson’s Kitchen: Food & Family Lore from the Lowcountry, a collection of 100 new recipes, was released in September of 2019 by University of Florida. Chef Robinson conducts cooking demos locally and nationally (in 2011 she was the featured guest chef at The Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.), conducts tours/lectures about the history of Daufuskie Island and caters for private functions.
