Southern Comfort Food

Call it ‘Southern Comfort Foods’ or ‘Soul Food’ and you’re talking about the same type of ‘good eats’. Slave owners would dine on all the good cuts of meat while leaving the scraps, offal  and other less desirable foods for their slaves to eat. The term ‘Soul Food’ came to being in the mid-sixties when ‘Soul” was used to describe African-American culture. Today, ‘Soul’ and ‘Comfort’ are used interchangeably.
