Description: When you think of "soul food, " one person comes to mind -- Sylvia Woods, best known for her world-famous restaurant in Harlem. In this all-new cookbook, Sylvia tells her unbelievable story for the first time. Born and raised in Hemingway, South Carolina, her grandfather was hanged for a crime he didn't commit and her father died when she was three days old. When Sylvia was just three years old, her mother moved to New York City, leaving Sylvia to be raised by her grandmother. Sylvia's mother worked as a laundress until she saved enough money to come back to South Carolina and build a house for her family.

It was years before Sylvia found her true calling. She went to beauty school and opened a shop in her mother's house. Eventually, Sylvia would marry her childhood sweetheart, move to New York City, and struggle to make enough money to raise a family. Finally, Sylvia managed to buy the Harlem restaurant that she worked in as a waitress. That restaurant was the start of what became Sylvia's Restaurant.

This cookbook tells Sylvia's remarkable and inspiring story, from her youth in the Deep South, to her rise to culinary fame. The reminiscences, combined with 125 recipes from Sylvia's family and friends, and dozens of family photographs, make this a cookbook like no other. It reads and feels like a family album, making it a perfect gift. The recipes, from collard greens to pound cake, portray real soul food at its best, heartwarming and satisfying.
