About This Quiz

For a lot of people, soul food is synonymous with either food from the Deep South or simply African American cuisine. And there are definite areas of overlap there. South food was born in the south of the African American community. It's a mix of styles featuring African, European, American and more, and at the end of the day, it should be food that fills you up and makes you feel good that you ate it. A lot of people will tell you soul food needs to be made with love, and that can't be a bad way to cook.

Now if you have any passion for soul food at all, we can use that to learn a bit about you. Tell us what kind of soul food really gets your mouth watering, if you have a hunger for greens and cornbread, or sweet potato pie and black-eyed peas. Maybe you're less of a risk taker and just want to stick to some fried chicken and macaroni and cheese.  Whatever kind of soul food you like, take the quiz and tell us about it.  We'll dig through your answers, maybe grab a plate for ourselves while we're at it, and then make out best guess about how old you are based on your soul food favorites. Impossible? Nah, just takes some soul. Take the quiz and see!
