Hey It's Me! Southern Soul Food & Black Food Blogger Shaunda Necole - The Soul Food Pot

Meet Shaunda

I’m Shaunda Necole, podcasterauthor, lifestyle influencer and soul food blogger. I split my time between my homes in Virginia Beach and viva Las Vegas – and I love being an East Coast girl with a super sunny West Coast heart!

I grew up on Southern home-cooked meals. Soul food recipes handed down from grandma to mom to me!

As an adult, I’ve traveled the Caribbean islands, where I was introduced to many of my favorite African-Caribbean cuisines.


What makes me an expert on authentic soul food?

My heritage dates back to my great-grandmother Florence, a highly esteemed North Carolinian one-woman catering queen.

In honor of my Grandma Florence’s legacy, I run the world’s number-one soul food website today!

I’m a born and raised Southern girl living my best life in the fabulous entertainment and food capital of the world – viva Las Vegas!

It’s my pleasure to invite you into my kitchen through The Soul Food Pot – one-pot soul food recipes straight to plate.
