Soul Food Love by Alice Randall. Published by Random House

There has been tremendous popularity of regional foods and the “feel good” dinners of our parents and grandparents day in the last ten years or so. There has also been a lot of heart disease and obesity and that caused Randall to rethink how we make the food we love. The food that we were eating a daily basis was the same food our ancestors ate, but they ate those meals on special occasions, like holidays or birthdays. We were eating them everyday, that combined with our more sedentary lifestyle was literally a recipe for disaster. Here, Randall reworks some of those old recipes for today, with less fat and sodium. Stories about her family, combined with recipes for starters, mains and desserts make this a fun and useful addition to any cook’s shelf
