I’d like to tell you about my SOUL FOOD Project.
What could an Australian know about Soul Food I hear you ask? I know the history, but not the real flavors. So there’s only one way to find out – travel from the east coast of Australia to the east coast of the USA.
Hoe Cakes, Hush Puppies, Fried Catfish, Chitterlings and Hog Maws...
What does Soul Food mean to you? To me it’s a huge part of the history and heart of America.
In 2011 my question is: ‘Has Soul Food lost its soul?’
Starting on the East Coast I will interview cooks in home kitchens and Soul Food cafes, cookbook authors, and consumers – for a book I am writing about Soul Food.
Maybe you know the ideal person to interview, or have some stories of your own?
I want to record these stories, recipes and memories before they are lost in the fast food landscape of burgers and curly fries. Yes, I am for real.
This project combines my passions for people, African American history and culture, and food.
If you want to know more or suggest anyone I need to contact please PM me.
This is a labour of love not a commercial venture. Thank you.
