Princess Pamela’s Soul Food Cookbook embodies what folks are now discovering about black women and food. Her success as an author, entrepreneur, and performer was more than magic. For a southern-born girl, it took grit and kitchen skills to thrive in the Big Apple restaurant scene—Ms. Strobel did that on her own terms. The classic recipes remind us that life is good with a dash of prose. From Headcheese to Peanut Pie, Pamela shows a new generation about soul.”
