Denver’s soul food scholar cranks up the heat with ‘Black Smoke’
James Beard Award-winning food historian Adrian E. Miller built a career by breaking from convention … three careers, actually. Now he’s into his third career as an author and the nation’s premier soul food scholar. He’s also a certified barbecue judge who has lectured across the country on such topics as Black chefs, chicken and waffles, kosher soul food and soda pop. Adrian’s latest book covers the culinary contributions Black people have made to American barbecue.
