Happy Black History Month-Sylvia's Soul Food!


Sofrito Lovers,


Today is the start of Black History Month, a time to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions of Black people to American culture, food, art, and music.  I can't think of a better way to celebrate this auspicious time, than with my favorite cookbook: Sylvia's Soul Food.


Sylvia Woods (AKA The Queen of Soul Food) is the owner of a world-famous soul food restaurant in Harlem, New York.  Everyone from former NYC Mayor Ed Koch to President Barack Obama have dined at Sylvia's.  Often overlooked, it's a culinary institution that has made a significant impact on New York City's culture.  For more information on Sylvia's restaurant and their amazing food, click here: Sylvia's.


Naturally, a culinary powerhouse like Sylvia would write a cookbook-which has changed my life as an amateur cook.  Sylvia's Soul Food is a simple, incredible, and fun cookbook that breaks down her iconic dishes into a few simple steps any dummy like me can follow.  The cookbook has changed my life; it's made my attempts at soul food very successful!


Buy yourself a copy on Amazon and start cooking.  


Go taste for yourself! ¬°Buen Provecho!
