Soul food is a cuisine that gained popularity in the southern United States. This type of food is said to have come about during the slavery era and was influenced by African, European and Native American dishes. The term "soul food," however, was coined sometime during the sixties, at the time of the Black Power movement. In fact, Malcolm X's autobiography was one of the earliest books to contain the phrase.
Today, this kind of food is eaten the world over, although it's still most popular in the southeastern states in the U.S.A.
