Soul: A Chef's Culinary Evolution in 150 Recipes

Soul: A Chef's Culinary Evolution in 150 Recipes

by Todd Richards

from the publisher

Black American chefs and cooks are often typecast as the experts of only one cuisine soul food, but Todd Richards food is anything but stereotypical. Taste his Collard Green Ramen, Hot-Chicken-Style Country-Fried Lamb Steak, or Blueberry-Sweet Tea-Brined Chicken Thighs as evidence. While his dishes are rooted in family and the American cuisine known as soul food, he doesn t let his heritage restrain him. The message of SOUL is that cooks can honour tradition yet be liberated to explore. Richards believes home cooks and chefs of all races and nationalities can inspire each other through personal wanderlust and experience, global cuisines, nature, and curiosity. Whether readers are new to Southern and soul food or call the South their home, they will be inspired to not only step outside of the box, but to happily, boldly walk away from it. That is exactly how cuisines evolve. And that is when cooks will truly begin to discover their own soulful cooking.
