Let’s explore the story behind soul food and how it came to be. Let us consider the historical context of soul food cuisine, how it got its name and the characteristics that make it a unique pillar of American cuisine. As we experiment together with soul food recipes, we’ll dig a little deeper to uncover the relationship between this history and its connection to our overall food system, culture, power, our health and the impacts therein. In this class we will delve into all these areas while creating a delicious plant-based, soul food-inspired meal.

You’ll receive recipes for the entire menu and we’ll cook one to two of these dishes live together:

  • Black eyed peas and forbidden black rice
  • Collard greens
  • Cornbread
  • Vegan banana pudding
  • Seasonal lemonade
