‘Soul Food Seasoning’ Must Be Stopped
Posted on January 20, 2016
Ethnic seasoning mixes have always been somewhat problematic.
The concepts of Italian seasoning and Mexican seasoning imply that, with the shake of a canister, your food will taste like it came from a different country. And truthfully, these products only make sense because the range of ethnic foods that the average American is likely to cook at home is probably incredibly limited. And in those cases, the pre-fab mixtures probably do a halfway decent job for a very narrow list of food choices. But when I came across “Soul Food Seasoning” at my local grocer the other day, I was overcome with WTF.
