Last weekend I watched one of my all time favourite movies, 'Soul Food' and was inspired to go back to my Mother's roots and make a meal every Southern woman would be proud of. Soul food is basic, down-home cooking with its roots in the rural South.
In his "Soul Food Cookbook" (1969), Bob Jeffries summed it up this way: “While all soul food is Southern food, not all Southern food is soul. Soul food cooking is an example of how really good Southern [African-American] cooks cooked with what they
had available to them.”
For lunch we got, fried chicken, mac n' cheese and homemade dropped biscuits! We should really have thrown in some collard greens or black eyed peas but unfortunately I could not find any collard greens
in Nassau and my husband does not really care for the peas.
