    Hello Chef, I have an important research project on southern food due soon and I just came across your blog. In my project, I’m trying to highlight how southern/soul food is healthy at its roots, and that stereotypes to the contrary are often misplaced. I hate to have come across this fabulous blog so late in my project, but I would really love to interview you briefly sometime this week if possible. If you’re interested, what is the best way to contact you?

  7. Chef,
    Your insight into soul food cooking is amazing. Your blog is not only thought provoking and real but it’s also an entertaining piece of literature. Keep up the good work. I will share your blog with my friends and coworkers! I do not know much about you. Where is your restaurant located? Thank you for this blog,
    Loyal to the roots,

      Thank you Delisa, I’m sure you would agree that History and Culture is important. However, today it is critical. I’m doing my part to bring awareness. I appreciate you sharing this information with Family, Friends and co-workers. It’s makes good office chat.
      I currently own and operate a cooking school, restaurant consulting service as well as a food products company in South Florida. http://soulfoodschool.com
      My restaurant will open this summer. It’s the first location of a chain. It will be the model for the ‘Next Generation of Soul Food Restaurants’! I will make the City and date public soon. Please bookmark me for updates.

  8. We do an event called “Artists Who Cook”. I am wondering if you would be one of our featured aritsts this year? We offer a $1000.00 stipend and travel and lodging. We would be seeking a cooking demo on Saturday during the event and a community talk about food on Sunday.

    The focus is healthy food.

    The date is June 1, 2012.

    I am hoping to have commitments by the end of December.

    Hi Chef Emanuel-

    I’m Sophia with the Associated Press in Chicago. I’m writing about Soul Food in the city, namely the decline of Soul Food restaurants, and could use your expertise. Do you have some time for an interview?

    • Chef Emanuel says:

      Hello Sophia, I would Love to assist you. This is a vital topic that most Americans are unaware of. It is an issue that has far reaching repercussions on American History. Thank you for bringing attention to the issue. I’ll call you!
