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 leftover 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 those few items, a variety of wholesome dishes were created. They learned how to use everything, nothing was wasted.
