Patti LaBelle is no doubt a living legend when it comes to her music but she is also known to be quite the cook. Her Patti Pies went viral and created a frenzy and sold out across America. She hosts a cooking show with celebrity guest cooking up all kinds of deliciousness and now she is giving us a taste of her soul food. The Philadelphia native has partnered with Walmart for a frozen food line of her soul food.
Patti shared with the crowd at EssenceFest, “Coming soon to a Walmart near you, you’ll have my savory foods, There will be foods like macaroni and cheese. It’s greens, it’s brisket, it’s chicken and biscuits, and five more I can’t think of them.”
She's partnered with Walmart before when she released her famous sweet potato pie, chocolate, caramel and red velvet cakes, buttermilk pies and cobblers. She also teamed up with a restaurateur to launch a line of frozen Chinese foods as well.
LaBelle did however caution fans to eat her rich, savory foods moderately because she has to do the same because of her diabetes.
“Health is important, I’m a diabetic,” she told the crowd. “And when I make macaroni and cheese I don’t usually eat it, I taste it, because I am a diabetic for 25 years. Ladies and gentlemen, you have to take care of yourselves and eat healthier. But eat.”
After watching the cooking show, I can't wait to try the yumminess!
