Tajah and Rakhya, Soul Fusion by Chef El-Amin
It all started in 1986 when Chef Yusef El-Amin was working as a frozen food distributor. One day, his freezer filled with frozen fish conked out. He realized he could throw it out – or cook it up and feed people in the community.
With the help of his wife and siblings, Chef chose to feed the community which led him to starting a business in his basement, organizing the popular “Friday Fish Fry”, and then opening a popular soul food restaurant named Chef El-Amin in New Rochelle NY. It was truly a family affair!
Recognizing the lack of accessible soul food that is healthier, the Chef’s daughters Tajah and Rakhya, “remixed” their Dad’s traditional soul food recipes to create a line of fresh, frozen, and shelf-stable items called Soul Fusion by Chef El-Amin.
The line includes Plant Based, Halal, and Vegetarian southern comforts made with lower salt and sugar content for families and professionals like YOU, who are often too busy to cook.
