Sylvia’s Family Soul Food Cookbook begins as Sylvia recalls her childhood, when she lived with both her mother and her grandmother — the town’s only midwives. The entire community of Hemingway, South Carolina, shared responsibilities, helped raise all of the children, and worked side by side together every day in the bean fields. Perhaps most important, the community shared its food and recipes. When Sylvia set out to write this cookbook, she decided to hold a cook-off back home in Hemingway at Jeremiah Church. Family and friends of all ages shared their favorite dishes as well as their spirit and love for one another. The recipes offered at the cook-off were then compiled to create this incredible collection, along with many of Sylvia’s and the Woods family’s own recipes.
Here are the kinds of recipes you’d find if you visited the Woods family’s home. Sylvia’s daughter Bedelia is well known for her Barbecued Beef Short Ribs, which are as sassy and spicy as Bedelia herself. Kenneth, Sylvia’s youngest son, has loved to fish ever since he was a child, spending his summers by the fishing hole in Hemingway. Now Kenneth’s son, DeSean, enjoys fishing, too. Kenneth’s Honey Lemon Tilefish, DeSean’s favorite, is just one of Kenneth’s special recipes presented here.
And there are many, many other wonderful dishes, too. In this remarkable cookbook, Sylvia has gathered more than 125 soul food classics, including mouthwatering recipes for okra, collard greens, Southern-style pound cakes, hearty meat and seafood stews and casseroles, salads, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and more. These recipes are straight from the heart of the Woods community of family and friends. Now Sylvia gives them to you to share with your loved ones. Bring them into your home and experience a little bit of Hemingway’s soul.

unbelievably easy to make, saucy braises, and soups that bring comfort with a sip. These are dishes that feed the belly and speak the universal language of “mmm!” You’ll find approachable recipes and plenty of tips for favorite homestyle Chinese dishes, such as red-braised pork belly, dry-fried green beans, braised-beef noodle soup, green onion pancakes, garlic eggplant, and the author’s famous potstickers, which consistently sell out her cooking classes in Seattle. You will also find helpful tips and techniques, such as caring for and using a wok and how to cook rice properly, as well as a basic Chinese pantry list that also includes acceptable substitutions, making it even simpler for the busiest among us to cook their favorite Chinese dishes at home.

Any kitchen can be a Chinese kitchen!

There is a misconception that Southern Cooking consists solely of Creole and Cajun cuisine. However, both of these culinary styles have their roots planted firmly in Louisiana soil. Whereas Southern Cooking encompasses cuisine from all of the Southern states and is as varied and different as the regions that make up the South. Creole and Cajun dishes have a strong culinary connection to France, a nodding acquaintance to Africa, Spain, and Native America, and to a lesser degree the West Indies, Ireland, Germany, and Italy. Southern cooks, on the other hand, have always creatively dipped into the mixing pot of Native American, European, and African cuisine, learning from cultures that once fused together to make the South what it is today. In fact, African traditions have had a significant influence on the flavors and cooking methods of what we lovingly refer to as Soul Food. As cliché as it may sound, heart and soul have been put into many of these dishes. There is a deep-rooted history behind every recipe. A feeling that each one was prepared with love and effort in the hope that every mouthful will be savored and enjoyed by those who eat it. Although some dishes are enjoyed throughout the South, they’ll vary depending on which state you are living. Take, for instance, ribs. In Texas, they make them spicy and saucy, while in Tennessee there’s more rub and the sauce is on the side. Go to the Carolinas though, and the sauce has more of a mustard flavor. America is defined by the influence of those who helped to make her great, be they African, Native American, or European, and Southern Cooking is at the very center of that beating heart.
Besides his family, music had always been the most important thing in Carter Greene’s life. Having a career in music was everything he had ever dreamed of.

A new edition gives due to this long-lost classic that helped define soul food.
Princess Pamela ruled a small realm, but her powers ranged far and wide. Her speakeasy-style restaurant in Manhattan was for three decades a hip salon, with regulars from Andy Warhol to Diana Ross. Her iconic Southern dishes influenced chefs nationwide, and her cookbook became a bible for a generation who yearned for the home cooking left behind in the Great Migration. One of the earliest books to coin soul food, this touchstone of African-American cuisine fell out of print more than forty years ago.
Pamela’s recipes have the clarity gained from a lifetime of practice—cardinal versions of Fried Chicken and Collard Greens, but also unusual gems like Pork Spoon Bread and Peanut Butter Biscuits—all peppered with sage advice on living and loving. Her book stands out for its joie de vivre and pathos as well as the skill of its techniques and is now available for cooks everywhere to re-create these soul-satisfying dishes at home.
“If you lived in New York on big dreams and no money, Princess Pamela’s was where you wanted to eat. Quirky and clubby (the Princess didn’t let everybody in), her Little Kitchen served cheap cuts—tripe, chitlins’, pig tails—and made them taste like food for angels. You felt lucky to be there.”
