They share their journey to becoming a Chef, their favorite things about their local culture, a recipe that we can ALL make at home and their recipe for success. Lauren sits down with Soul musicians to bring you backstage into their world and share important stories from their experiences. If you love soul music and comfort food, you are in the right place!
