Soul Food Sampling

Blacksburg , VA 24060 United States

TICKETS SALES FOR THIS EVENT ARE NOW CLOSED. Check back here next year for the 6th Annual Soul Food Sampling!   Food is important to every culture Ingredients, and traditions that define procuring, preparing, and consuming food differ as cultures develop over time and places. Soul Food Sampling will include a brief discussion about the history and traditions of soul food, the recollections of residents of the former New Town neighborhood where the St. Luke and Odd Fellows Hall is located, and samplings of traditional soul foods. Enjoy great food as we explore the origins of this cuisine that developed through the imposed privations of enslaved people as they persevered and prospered by creating “food families.” The remarkable cooks who devised the cuisine not only put food on the table but also made it taste good! Today, “soul food” describes certain tastes and ingredients as well as the traditions of survival, community cohesion, and caring family relationships. Guests will enjoy typical soul food in an atmosphere of lively conversation, informative discussions, and excellent examples of this truly American cuisine. Sponsored by the Virginia Tech Foundation, the merchants of the North End Center, Downtown Blacksburg, Inc., Champs, and Blue Ridge Catering & Wikiteria.
