About This Quiz

Soul food is a kind of cuisine inspired from different countries around the world whose immigrants have eventually settled in the southern United States. The foods have roots in slavery and the African American populations that existed decades and centuries ago. By the 1960s, the term "soul food" was coined and has since stuck. 

This kind of food involves lots of seasoning, tons of flavor and may not be the healthiest of choices. But people love it, understandably, although there are a few dishes here and there that haven't yet become favorites. So, we want to know what you think about some soul food dishes. We want you to tell us exactly how you feel about dishes like chicken fried steak, ham hocks, collard greens, cornbread and cobbler.
