You might know her as the “Godmother of Soul,” but Patti LaBelle also knows what makes a good, soulful meal.
The artist showed people her passion for cooking when she started making homemade hot sauces and barbecue sauces 15 years ago. Today, LaBelle is giving people a literal piece of pie with dishes like sweet potato pie and chicken and biscuits, according to her brand’s website. Before starting her brand, she cooked for music heavy hitters like Prince. LaBelle talked about putting her heart into her cooking. She told the news outlet, “So many different people in the industry just loved my cooking … because I cook with my heart.”
LaBelle understands that times are hard, and she wants food to be affordable. She said, “When I do put this line out, it’s going to be affordable because some of my friends didn’t have much.” MSNBC reported.
According to Patti’s Good Life site, the singer and cook will add breakfast, wine, and dessert selections to her brand.
