Best Soul Food

Geri is from Alabama and her Southern roots are smeared all over the menu of her laid-back Renton eatery, Geri's Casual Dining & Catering. Down-home fare runs deep, with collard greens and chopped cabbage braised until they're soft and buttery, thick oxtail stew, catfish, and fried okraâ€"dishes that are low on the glam factor, but cooked with love (and typically a hunk of pork). Because that's what soul food is, people: humble, inexpensive ingredients generously seasoned and served alongside a chunk of cornbread. Praise the lard and pass the peach cobbler!
