Item Description...
When Joyce White moved to New York City from Alabama, she left small-town life behind and landed ajob as a food editor at a major women's magazine. Weekends, however, found her visiting churches in Harlem and Bedford-Stuyvestant, looking for a taste of home. Food has long been a part of the spiritual life of African-American churches, and what she found there, along with what she missed from home, was the comforting blend of cooking and fellowship that feeds both the body and soul.

In this warm and joyful collection, White offers more than 150 recipes for the foods that worshipers look forward to after services, and she captures the spirit of these sociable meals with warm, conversational and occasionally poignant reflections from African-American churchgoers around the United States.

"We don't just come to church service and leave," says a retired nurse who directs hospitality for a large church in Los Angeles. "Many of us stay here half the day. That way we get a chance to rub shoulders and see what is going on or going wrong with each other."

From delicious renditions of classics such as Sugar-Crusted Biscuits to updated favorites such as Black Beans with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, as well as special fare for entertaining and Kwaanza, the pages of Soul Food are alive with the spirit and love of African-American churches -- and the terrific food to be found there.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great cookbook  Aug 12, 2007
This is a great cookbook. It brings back many memories of great and talented family cooks. I gave away six copies as Christmas presents to family members. We are not Southerners, but we are foodies and we do remember church socials and events fondly here in New Jersey. The baked rice, Texas Chili rice and the squash casserole have become big hits in my own household. Kudos to Ms. White and her friends.
A great surprise in every recipe!  Jan 27, 2006
It would be impossible to single out one recipe in this book and say it's the best. They are all the best and they work well together. I must say, I never thought molasses would be a staple in my cupboard but it is. If you bought this book just for the neat meatloaf recipe, it would be worth it. These are tried and true recipes of the past, each one with its own unique story.
Solid Book  Oct 22, 2005
I collect Aferican-American cookbooks. My perfect book is a good mix of authentic recipes and backroung info to add to heritage of the recipe. While I like the format and actual page layout of other African-American cookbooks better, this book has some solid recipes. Where this book excels over others is that there is a story behind nearly every recipe and there is lots of variety in the recipes. The recipes are easy to follow and do remind you of church anniversary dinners!
Very likely the best soul food cookbook in print  Dec 6, 2001
A cookbook will be judged primarily on its recipes and this one really delivers the goods. Unlike so many books that chase prevailing food trends and offer gimmicky recipes with needlessly lengthy ingredients lists, this one presents plenty of time-tested classics that are economical and simple to prepare. A cookbook that you'll really *use*, rather than just put on your coffee table. The affectionate background material included by the author is a charming bonus.
Well done (no pun intended!)  Jul 31, 2001
This is a really practical book full of easily followed recipes, anecdotes and pictures. Those of us raised in the church know about the important role of those manning the pots. Not just anyone got to serve on the kitchen committee. No indeed. Only those accomplished cooks who knew how to "put their foot in it," were allowed to toil most church kitchens. I am glad to see that this author has drawn on the wisdom of these faithful chefs and was able to get them to share their recipes.

I love to cook whenever we have big family gathering because we're all so busy now and spread out all over the East Coast. We don't always have the time to prepare these types of meals for ourselves on a regular basis, but for special occasions, this is one of my favorite books. I especially like the wheat bread recipe. One day when I'm feeling bold, I will move on the dinner rolls and angel biscuits.

I enjoyed looking at the black and white pictures showing the cooks working and the parishoners enjoying the food. There is a lot of history in this book. You might just want to order two copies -- one for the kitchen and another for the coffee table.
