Soul Food

The Cuisine referred to as "SOUL FOOD" originated in the kitchens of African-American Slaves in the late 1800's. In the 1960‘s, Southern-style cooking by Black Americans was renamed “SOUL FOOD” in honor of Black Cooks who prepared food during the Slavery era, paving the way in the development of African American cuisine - now soul food. Soul food recipes typically called for ingredients that are indigenous to Africa and were often found on American Plantations.

African-American Food’s History & Soul by Tom Ashbrook | Our word for okra comes from the Igbo language in Nigeria. Gumbo, the word itself, harks back to the Bantu. So does “goober,” as in peanut. Watermelons appear in Egyptian tomb paintings, and have been grown for centuries in the Kalahari. Black-eyed peas pour out of markets from Dakar to Zanzibar – and across soul food menus and kitchen counters all over America. Image: Soul food (Flickr/MookieLuv)
