We are certain that many of our followers have noticed that we highlight restaurants in Southern California to inform everyone about wonderful places with good food and of course that are African American. Food is an important part of the African American culture: During the era of slavery, captives used food practices to maintain a cultural connection with Africa. … Not only have food practices been used as a means of performing a distinctive African American identity, but also people of African descent have played a significant role in shaping a unique American style of eating. Food also brings family together! My Fathers BBQ is no different: Pitmaster Shalamar Lane grew up learning Alabama and Texas-style barbecue traditions from her dad and his sisters. Today, she combines these family traditions, regional-styles, and some of her own unique barbecue techniques at My Father’s Barbeque in Carson, California. We learned a lot about BBQ and also learned about yet another great place to take family, friends, or your date!
