Just in case you haven’t heard it yet, the wonderful Nicole Taylor (@foodculturalist) had me and my good friends Tonya Hopkins (@thefoodgriot) and Jackie Gordon (@thedivathatateny) over to the Heritage Radio Network studios in Bushwick, Brooklyn to the last show for African American Heritage Month, 2013.  The interview was partly cut off when it originally aired, so I have had multiple requests to post the whole interview here.  Special thanks to Nicole, Erin, Joe, Jackie and Tonya for making this happen.

Here’s the link:

“Soul food is not slave food, and it’s not necessarily West African food. Soul food is the (memory) cuisine of the great grandchildren of enslaved people.” [18:00]

“Soul Food is the culinary flashback–half comfort–half conjecture–completely authentic—of the African American people.  “
