Delicious soul food can be found across the United States. Pictured here is a platter of pork chops, mac 'n' cheese and collard greens from Gilliam Sisters Soul Food restaurant in Florida. In Philadelphia, places like South, Green Soul and Deborah’s Kitchen are known for their soul food favorites.

An informative new series will look at soul food in Philadelphia, exploring where it came from, what it is now and where it's going.

There are three 90-minute sessions in the coming weeks that each will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and include talks, cooking demos and panel discussions.
