Different cultures across the world have different ways of life and as such, different cuisines and eating habits. The diversity of the cuisines across the world ensures that as people move from one place to another, they end up carrying some of their cuisines and create a whole new experience where they move. Various cuisines are famous for their historical connotations and one such cuisine is the Soul Food Cuisine. Originally an American cuisine that was made up of hand picked foods that were common amongst the African American community, the Soul food cuisine has become a very popular dish and in many local restaurants and eating places, one will encounter it on the menu. Historically, the soul food cuisine made its way into the local menus having come from as far back as the mid 1960's when the word soul was a very common word used to refer to Black American way of life. Many Soul Food Restaurants serve this very historically rich food with the knowledge that it had its roots in typical African foods like Rice and Sorghum as well as Okra. Slave trade made sure that most of these foods found their way to American society and eventually to the numerous Soul Food Restaurants that developed with time. Soul Food Restaurants have become quite numerous over the years and in almost every local place you go to you are bound to find one. There are many reasons why this is so; one of them being that in the past, the African American race passed on their recipes from one generation to another by word of mouth. As such, one had to learn the cuisine by heart and as a result perfect the art of preparing the Soul food. These Soul Food Restaurants have been set up by passionate people who have sought to carry forward the culture as well as give other people a taste of the rather delicious but rare Soul food.
