A Taste of Soul
Join us to share in the deep Southern, African-American tradition of soul food. This style of cooking originated when African Americans, enslaved, were given the leftovers scraps. They didn't complain about what they got; they just cooked some of the tastiest food. Traditionally their rations consisted of corn, bacon or salt pork, molasses, flour, seasonal fruits and vegetables; with these few items a variety of wholesome dishes were created. They learned how to use everything; nothing was wasted.
