    Soul Food with Pierre

    Program Manager of Windham County, Elisha Underwood would like to introduce you to her dear friend Pierre Bartley through this 3 part short video series, Soul Food with Pierre.  Soul Food with Pierre highlights a complete meal created by a local soul food enthusiast who has spent his life perfecting recipes taught to him at a very young age. He has found ways to change the recipes to add more flavor and reduce the fat content. Pierre shares that Soul Food is about a bringing people together in a family, neighborhoods or community.
