Our guest this morning is Sandra Foster. Sandra is the owner and operator of Flossie’s Southern Cuisine located in Torrance.

Originally from Mississippi, she worked as a teenager with her mother in a popular hometown restaurant.

After graduating from college, Sandra became a teacher but her entrepreneurial spirit and close relationship with her mother reignited her passion for cooking.

Working as a team, Sandra and her mother were the heart and soul of a very popular Southern California restaurant and because of its success they ventured out on their own, establishing Flossie’s.

When her mother passed, Sandra modified the recipes to reflect today’s healthy lifestyle.

Sandra is on a mission. She wants the world to know that Southern food - commonly known as ‘soul food’ - is America’s food and if prepared correctly, can be as healthy as it is tasty.

She purchases produce from local farmers markets and prepares them fresh daily.  Meats and seafood are never frozen and fish is prepared to order. Fried chicken, catfish and snapper are fried in canola oil and the lemonade is fresh squeezed.

Flossie’s deserts are so varied it’s hard to pick a favorite and her banana pudding is made the old fashion way with no shortcuts.

To foster a new understanding of Southern cooking, Sandra is writing a cookbook, and designing cooking classes to teach anyone who is interested how to cook healthy, flavorful Southern meals.

But for right now, she is still serving up the best Southern food this side of the Mississippi.
