UKTV Food presents The Soul Food Week 25th - 29th June

Charita Jones will be guest starring on Market Kitchen for soul food week to demonstrate her unique style of soul food cooking

Soul Food Week on Market Kitchen – Charita Jones cooks up a storm with Tana Ramsey and Matthew Fort.

Market Kitchen has celebrated the best of Irish, the best of Italian and sampled the many delights of Borough market. This week we will be celebrating soul food with a host of delicious recipe’s.

Charita Jones will be showing presenters Tana Ramsey, Matthew Fort and the viewers at home just how it is done.

Charita came to fame through Television’ Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares, which featured her Brighton restaurant, Momma Cherri’s Soul Food Shack. <> grew up in Philadelphia where she cooked meals for the whole family, and went on to serve her family recipes in her restaurant. She travelled to England in 1978 with a travelling black theatre group, fell in love with the country and never looked back.

Charita will be cooking up a storm with recipe’s from her book Mama Cherri’s Soul in a Bowl cookbook. On Monday she’ll be making mouth-watering pancakes with maple syrup and bacon. On Tuesday she’ll be whipping up soul food signature dish Jambalaya. Wednesday’s offering will be chitterlings with hot sauce and cornbread. Thursday she’ll be making the lip smacking pan fried jerk snapper with black eyed peas a la shack (tomatoes) and fried plantain and on Friday she will rustle up sweet potato and pecan pie.

In keeping with the soul food week theme, Levi Roots – who vowed the judges on BBC’s Dragon’s Den, will be coming onto the show on Friday to talk about his infamous Reggae Reggae sauce.

Entertaining and interactive, Market Kitchen is presented by passionate and knowledgeable foodies with a real appetite for life. Fronted by Tana Ramsay (best selling author of Tana Ramsay’s Family Kitchen), Tom Parker Bowles (author of The Year of Eating Dangerously and food writer for the Mail on Sunday and Tatler), Matthew Fort (food writer and critic) and award winning chef Matt Tebbutt (Great British Menu). Each week the team is joined by a celebrity guest chef, and all the mouth-watering food created during the programme is sampled and judged by members of the public, invited to join them in the Market Kitchen café.

Market Kitchen will serves up an irresistible mix of food, recipes and market life every evening, with a second helping at lunchtimes. If you love food, you’ve come to the right place.
