What Is Soul Food?

Nov 17, 2019

How would you define "soul food?" To 'Food Guy' Jon Jackson, it's ham hocks, butter beans, cornbread and mustard greens. But Jon's fellow Detroiters might name red beans and rice, or barbequed ribs. Greg Patent's idea of soul food is Iraqui chicken or Russian borscht. "Ethnic food--maybe that's what all soul food is," concludes Jon.
