If anyone could please explain what is Jewish about “Soul Food” I’d love to know. Thank you.

Soul food is not Jewish at all. Now if you’re talking about “Jewish soul food” there’s lots out there but soul food itself is a black American concept with nothing Jewish about it.

This may be good but it is neither soul food nor southern style.

Fried chicken in the south would never be served with any kind of syrup. Our breaded chicken is an art Simply bread by dipping chicken in flour seasoned with salt, pepper and perhaps a bit of ground thyme, then into egg and again flour. The test is to achieve a crispy, noncrumbly crust and moist chicken.
For those who ask – great fried chicken is equal to chicken soup. Both warm the soul and show the devotion of a loving cook. Simple but not delicious unless done perfectly.

The recipe should be changed to exclude any mention of butter
or milk.. Even though it seems obvious that margarine and dairyless beverages are meant, there are those who might share it with people who may be less informed and it constitutes “lifnei eyvair lo sitain michshol”

I agree with# 6. Also have an issue with calling things “bacon” even though they mean crispy kosher meat. Why cant we just be proud of our own “soul food”, and yes, it is soul food that feeds our Jewish neshamos.

Go Chaya!!!!
