Send Soul Food Chocolates

If you have an artist, a dreamer, a dancer, a mythologist, an imagineer, a writer amidst your clan, make sure to nourish their creative spirit by sending them a box of Chocolates from the Soul Food Cafe. But be cautioned! These hand filled chocolates are totally addictive and may change lives.

Childhood is a state or phase of imaginative existence, the phase in which the world of imagination is still a brave new world and yet reassuring and intelligible.

The strictly non-fat chocolate from the Soul Food Chocolate Box is full of projects and material to help us return to that wondrous kingdom where imagination and creativity rule. The special fillings focus on celebrating childhood joy, spontaneity and imagination.

Camel Stew - enough to feed an army

Skin trim and clean the camel, the lamb and the chickens
Boil until tender. Cook the rice until fluffy
Fry the nuts until golden brown and mix with the rice

Stuff the chickens with eggs and rice. Stuff the lamb with five of the chickens and some more rice. Stuff the camel with the lamb and still more rice

Bake in a large, and we mean large, oven at 180 until brown, basting regularly.

spread the remaining rice on a large tray and place the camel on top. Place the remaining stuffed chickens around the camel. Decorate with rice with boiled eggs and nuts.
