My Family Recipe
Cornbread and the Soul of African American Cuisine with Adrian Miller
On the season finale of My Family Recipe, host Arati Menon welcomes Adrian Miller, AKA “The Soul Food Scholar.” Not many people can boast their accomplishments as a food writer, James Beard award winner, attorney and certified barbecue judge; but Adrian Miller is one-in-a-million. Adrian talks about the dishes and characters who populated his childhood and his church community in Denver, Colorado. He tells us the story of the perfect cornbread and how this recipe represents so much more history and love than its simplicity might suggest.
If you’re hungry for more of this story, you can read the original essay “The No Fail Cornbread That's Slightly Sweet and Very Divine,” published by Food52.
