Professional reviews

"The tempo of the musical introduction establishes the upbeat tone in this celebration of soul food. Narrator, author, and chef Carla Hall brings out the rich tastes, texture, and history of these recipes for every day and celebrations. She infuses heart and soul into her explanations of the origins of soul food, which is steeped in African-American history, and details how she has redefined it to make the recipes more accessible for busy families while maintaining the integrity of the cuisine's flavors. In addition to dousing cucumbers in vinegar and chicken wings in a sweet-and-sour glaze, Hall sprinkles humor, warmth, and insight into her cooking tips and stories. This is a drool-worthy performance as comforting and nourishing as the recipes themselves. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
