Soul Food Love by Alice Randall and Caroline Randall Williams is a book with healthy recipes inspired by 100 years of cooking from a black family. The recipes from this book come from 5 kitchens, 3 generations that were overweight, and a 4th generation that refused to be overweight. This book starts off with several chapters of family history that was written in a way that kept me intrigued and interested. For those of you who are like me and enjoy reading cookbooks like they’re a novel, this book is totally for you.
This book is beautifully published in non-shiny cover along with non-shiny pages, which I found perfect for the theme of this book. The recipe sections in the book include: Sips & Bites, Soups, Main Dishes, Sides & Salads, Desserts, Crowns, and For a Crowd. I’m excited to try the Homemade Peanut Butter and the Southern Hummus. Grandma’s Bellini and the Chocolate Communion sound out of this world, and totally out of my comfort zone.
Most of the recipes go along side a picture of that recipe, which is always a great attribute in cookbooks. I can’t wait to try some of the recipes in this book. I am thankful for Blogging for Books who sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
