Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine
In Soul Food–really a love letter to African American cooks–I create a representative soul food meal, and I write a separate chapter on each part of the meal. So, there are chapters on fried chicken, greens, black-eyed peas, etc. In an informative and entertaining way, I discuss the history of each food item and answer the following questions:
- What is the food item?
- How did it get on the soul food plate?
- What does the food item mean for African American culture?
