Quoting LectioDivina:Butter vs. Lard?
Butter vs. Lard?
Maybe from down South, which wouldnt be a black thing but a Southern thing. Ive been around black people my whole life. My SO of 7 years is black and I have NEVER once seen or heard of any of the black people I know using lard to cook.
I am very mixed! I use spices that Blacks would use I also use Hungarian spices Thai spices (lived in Thailand for a couple of years) Cuban spices it just depends on what I am cooking! I love to cook and bake Sunday is my baking and cooking day since I am in school full-time and so is my wife and I like a home cooked meal every day! So we have food in the freezer cooked or ready to go in the crock pot, breads and such for the week as well.
I experiment a lot I love those flavored syrups and today I am making salted Carmel sticky buns they smell yummy and they are just in the bread maker!
Quoting Anonymous:I have my own way of cooking no race involved!
Quoting A.B.C.brown07:Lol. It's more a "cultural" thing, no different than how the French and English start each meal with warm tea. Black people have a cultural of food which includes certain dishes derived from years ago. I think it's immature to really classify it as a "black/white" thing Hispanics, Asians, europeans, Canadians, etc. not to mention "northerners" and "southerners" of America . we all have cultural differences in our food and ways of cooking ETA: again, not all black people are American heritage and like "soul" food. My family is Guyanese and our cultural dishes are Caribbean (curry, jerk chicken, ox tails, etc) This is why this argument is silly
Didn't know there was a difference lol. I just like southern food :)
Black people "put their foot" in their cooking and add a pinch of "soul."
I think it should be more like..Is there a difference in yankee and southern cooking..Yankees cook "white people food" and southerners cook "black people food"..Black people food is way better!
In the south it isn't so much white compared to black as it is southern compared to northern....it's not so much they cook differently, but that they eat different things.
Idk, I'm a southern girl, we all cook soul food.
