What is Soul Food?

Soul food is a cuisine that originated in the African American community of the Southern United States. Although the term was first seen in print in 1964 during the rise of the Black pride movement, soul food has its roots in traditional Southern cooking, which goes back much farther. 

Soul food got its start in rural Southern home cooking, which made use of locally raised or gathered foods along with other inexpensive ingredients. This is exactly what the term is meant to celebrate: the resourcefulness and skill of Southern cooks who created a distinctive food culture in spite of limited resources.
