This category is for sites devoted to African-American heritage recipes and soul food.
Soul food grew from the subsistence diet of African-Americans while they were in bondage, first by physical chains, then economic ones. The term its self was first coined by African-Americans living in the Northern states to describe their food heritage. While it is somewhat a derivative of Southern cooking, it is eaten all over the United States.
This category is for cooking and recipe sites. If your site sells African-American products or soul food ingredients, please submit it to the appropriate category under Shopping.
This category is for cooking and recipe sites devoted to the cuisine of Louisiana.
Cajun- The cuisine of the descendants of the Acadian French people who migrated to South Louisiana from Nova Scotia. The cuisine is characterized by the use of pork fat, heavy use of cayenne pepper and hot sauces, and indigenous wildlife and plants.
Creole- The cuisine of the French upper class in South Louisiana, based more on traditional French cooking. It is characterized by the use of butter instead of pork fat and generally is not as heavily spiced as Cajun cuisine.
