Soul Food Thanksgiving is a digital cookbook of classic soul food (or Southern) holiday dishes made using whole food that delivers big flavor. Written by Saveur Blog Awards finalist and cooking video presenter, Kendra Valentine (www.Americulinariska.com), special care was taken to develop recipes that would produce the traditional holiday dishes, but with the love, flavor, and respect they deserve. Written to appeal to new and old cooks alike, this digital book contains genuine recipes not to be found anywhere online. I offer context on every technique, a little history, a full shopping list, and measurements in both U.S and metric, so those of you cooking outside the U.S can get down in the kitchen too! 10% of all profits will be donated to The Hunger Project.
Despite the holiday’s troubling history, Thanksgiving is known today as an occasion to express gratitude and celebrate community. Each in-depth recipe personally guides you through the cooking process as if we are preparing the holiday meal together. No robotic instructions! Just comforting ingredients and well-executed cooking that suits every palate.
