Friends, get ready for my new YouTube series titled, Soul Food Talks. This long anticipated series is finally happening and I could not be more proud!
I'm meeting up with my great friends and fellow creators in New York to chat all things food, life, and upcoming projects. The series features guests including author and celebrity chef, Dan Churchill; singer, songwriter and musician, Aaron Marcellus; singer and songwriter, Tréi Stella; and, power couple extraordinaire and artists, Raii & Whitney. Each conversation is accompanied by a dish that screams "soul food" inspired by my guests favorite ingredients, dishes, and memories about food.
Soul Food Talks was inspired by my love and appreciation for the arts. Period. As a child, my idea of a happy life was to make art. As an adult, it's amazing to me how me and so many others have managed to turn this idea of creating things into successful careers. I say that with all humility, too. So I wanted to share the stories of creators doing amazing work to hopefully inspire others that dreams are possible to achieve while also providing entertaining content for viewers.
I was also inspired by the amazing, Questlove, and his book, somethingtofoodabout. In the book, Questlove interviews ten renowned chefs in America, unfolding the person behind the food. It fascinated me how relatable each of these chefs were yet how different were. I was inspired to bring together my friends and fellow creators over home cooked 'soul food' (however that might be defined) and share inspiring stories. To my surprise, it was quite easy to get my guests talking once they saw the food.
I am so excited to work with an amazing team of family, friends, producers, cinematographers, photographers, designers, and editors to bring this project to life. Stay tuned for more ahead. In the meantime, SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel and check out each of my friend's amazing work.
Peace & Love,
