Before You Begin: Figure Out How Many People Will Be in Attendance

Determine how many people are coming by. One of the great things about soul food menus is that you can always make more to share. If you have a small family of three to four, a main dish and two sides are often enough. If you add extras, you will have plenty of delicious leftovers.

If you have a larger family or plenty of guests, it’s best to load up on the sides and showcase your medal, and have at least six to seven dishes on the table.

Soul Food Menu Planning Tips

  • Don’t be afraid to ask for volunteers to prep entrees ahead of time. 
  • Consider trying one new recipe each year. 
  • Prioritize recipes that can be made ahead of time. 
  • Ask guests if they have any food allergies or special dietary needs. 
  • Always remember to relax and take a breathe.
