Soul food is an ethnic cuisine traditionally prepared and by African-Americans in the southern parts of the United States. The expression “soul food” was originated in the mid-1960s. That was when “soul” was a common word used to describe African-American culture. Soul food is basic, down-home cooking that’s been passed down through many generations, with its roots in the rural South.
The staples of soul food cooking are beans, greens, cornmeal (used in cornbread, hush puppies, johnnycakes, fried fish), and pork. Pork has been in a number of soul food meals.
