Soul Food

Marjorie was the cook at the first Soul Food Dinner. This was difficult for her because she knew nothing about soul food; she'd only ever cooked Canadian cuisine. Nevertheless, she learned to cook the items on the menu: fried chicken, collard greens, Hoppin' John, (a mixture of black-eyed peas and rice with red and green peppers, onion, and spices), sweet potato pie, peach cobbler, different salads, and so on. It was a lot of work for two cooks to prepare food for over 100 people.
