Smokey Launches Soul Food Line

Soul legend SMOKEY ROBINSON has teamed up with top soul food chef LEON ISAAC KENNEDY to create a new frozen food line.

The duo are the men behind the new Robinson/Kennedy food line, which gumbo connoisseur Robinson insists is the healthiest soul food on the planet.

The I SECOND THAT EMOTION singer says, "I'm a gumbo connoisseur. I've eaten gumbo everywhere they have gumbo, and this is top-notch gumbo.

"It's low in both sodium and cholesterol and the other benefit is that it's a frozen food item, 'cos gumbo takes all day and night to cook."

Robinson admits that he and Kennedy are planning a health food line if their new venture is a success.
