Sustainable Soul Food: A Nourishing Cuisine
The term “soul food” refers to the cuisine created by enslaved Africans in America during colonial times and is no doubt interwoven into quintessential contemporary American cuisine. Enslaved Africans applied both their culinary traditions and ingenuity to whatever food was available to them. Principle staples of soul food included beans, greens, root vegetables, cornmeal and the less desirable remains of animals, especially pork. Today, soul food has received a bad rep as the ultra unhealthy cuisine. Inherently, however, soul food is not unhealthy. With the industrialization of the food system and an exodus to urban environments, African Americans moved away from the land and from an agrarian lifestyle. Economically disadvantaged African Americans began trading in fresh foods for their processed and pre-packaged counterparts, seemingly cheaper and more convenient.
Join Organic Soul Chef Madea Allen for this hand-on local and sustainable soul food cooking class where she will share how to put the soul back into this beloved cuisine.
