I think that soul food, although it is an American style of food found all over the country today, has roots in the areas that once held slaves, and once harbored freed slaves. Yeah, it is everywhere today, but there was a migration of that style of cooking. But, it started with the slaves and freedmen.
Like most foods, I like some soul food, and not so much other soul food. But, I appreciate the history of soul food, whether I like it or not.
One of the best things about living in the "melting pot" is the incredible food we get to eat.
