In an earlier thread I mentioned a book containing an essay on Chicago Soul Food with some specific mentions of Soul Queen and H&H Café. The book is "Food in the USA: A Reader" edited by Carole M Counihan (ISBN 0-415-93232-7) and the chapter is "The Origins of Soul Food in Black Urban Identity: Chicago 1915-1947" by Tracy N Poe. Its a fairly interesting book, though quite diverse and scattered. There are some good essays but Im not sure its worth its cover price of $30. Very recently there was a copy on the shelf at Borders (Washington & Randolph; Cooking Essays) if anyone wants to have a look. While checking a few things using Google, I was surprised to find a slightly different version of Tracy Poes article, published in American Studies International. A link to a pdf version follows.
