The cuisine at Brown Sugar Kitchen reflects Tanya Holland’s interpretation of soul food. Her influences include her African-American heritage, her formal training at La Varenne Ecole de Cuisine in France, and her general appreciation of a wide variety of cuisines. If you want to dig deeper without actually coming down here, check out her book, New Soul Cooking (Stewart, Tabori, and Chang) or Sugar Kitchen cooks with locally grown, organic and seasonal ingredients whenever possible.
