About This Quiz

Soul food is a popular type of cuisine that involves mac and cheese, collard greens, fried chicken and fried green tomatoes among many other dishes. Though this type of cuisine is popular in the South, many cultures have adapted soul food to put a unique spin on it.

Let's take a look at some classic soul food recipes. Fried chicken, for instance, is made by frying chicken that has been dredged in various coats of seasoned flour and buttermilk. Fried catfish and fried pork chops are also popular fried foods, and pair well with a side of mashed potatoes and black-eyed peas with ham.
