Hope you’re hungry, because today we’re talking about soul food!
The style of cooking that we describe as Soul Food originated during American slavery. African slaves were given only the “leftover” and “undesirable” cuts of meat from their masters (while the white slave owners got the meatiest cuts of ham, roasts, etc.). The term “soul food” became popular in the 1960’s.
Our guest, Apostle Esperdell McGee, Jr., joins us in the studio. He is the pastor of Life Outreach Ministries and the owner of McGee’s soul food restaurant on the south side on Park Street.
