It was my good fortune to speak recently with Caroline Randall Williams and her mother, Alice Randall. They are the co-authors of Soul Food Love-Healthy Recipes Inspired by One Hundred Years of Cooking in a Black Family. I hope you will make the time to listen, buy the book, read their amazing story, and use the many creative recipes while creating your own kitchen legacy.  

The book has two distinct parts-a narraSoul Food Lovetive written by Alice that tells the story of three generations of cooks in her family who each weighed more than 200 pounds, and the fourth generation's different story penned by Caroline, who refused to succumb to the same weight issues.   Caroline developed the recipes that make up the second part of the book.

This week, Alice discusses over 100 years of cooking in her family, stories of both the men and women.  She describes the historical reality of the kitchen from an insecure, scary place, to a spot filled with warmth and community, and how that positive change in the kitchen’s personality along with the rise of industrialization resulted in the current health issues affecting the African American community.

The message of Soul Food Love is powerful and inspiring.  Though it ostensibly deals with one African American family, the stories and recipes are tools that anyone can use.

Alice Randall is the bestselling author of four novels, and the writer of one of my all-time favorite country songs, "XXX's and OOO's (An American Girl)," sung by Trisha Yearwood.  For more information on Alice, who teaches at Vanderbilt University, check our her website.

The Depot Brewery | "Flood Louisiana with LOVE"
We are partnering with the Gulf Coast to 'Flood Louisiana with Love' from Iowa.

3 Ways to GIVE:

(1)The Depot Brewery cash or check Donations
Thursday - Sunday open @ 5:00
(2) Iowa State Bank Fairfield, Iowa account
"Flood Louisiana with LOVE"
(3) Direct to our Gulf Coast Partner

My family is connected with City Hope and I assure you 100% of your donations go directly to the people affected by the flood. If you have never been affected by a natural disaster, it's hard to imagine the devastation. It is like being in a war zone. The realization of the far-reaching impact is truly devastating financially and emotionally to businesses, school children, and the little businesses like news paper routes that no longer exist because the homes are no longer there.

This kind of disaster reaches far and wide for years. People begin to give up hope. They need the basics like drinkable water and it's also nice to have a few comfort foods to give back normalcy. Emotional strength comes from knowing that your country and fellow Americans come to the aide of its people. I always try to remember in every tragedy you can find a blessing. My blessing is that this unites us!!! We all need that right now! Louisiana has had more than its share of disasters. Let's unite to help them and receive a blessing in the process.

Please GIVE strength with your giving and Hope with your LOVE

The Depot Brewery Staff thanks and appreciates you Iowa for uniting with our efforts to help Flood Louisiana with LOVE
