Award-winning author and former White House aide to appear at The Multicultural Center of the South, January 17
Author and food activist Adrian Miller is ending 2013 on top of the world. His book, Soul Food: A Surprising Story of an American Cuisine, One Plate at a Time (UNC Press) made the Kirkus Reviews’ Top 10 Non-Fiction Books of 2013 and Booklist’s Top 10 Food Books of 2103 lists. The former White House aide under Bill Clinton and self-professed “recovering lawyer” showcased soul food and also introduced the world to some talented chefs and cooks, including Webster Parrish native, Hardette Harris, a personal chef and culinary lifestyle expert. Harris’s grandmother Mrs. Suvillar Saulter Harris’s purple hull pea recipe is one of the 22 featured in Miller’s best seller.
Adrian Miller will be the special guest of Hardette Harris at a special book signing and community greet during the King Holiday weekend in Shreveport, Louisiana at The Multicultural Center of the South.
“It was a privilege being interviewed by Mr. Miller for his book. I felt he deserved a proper introduction to the area, the food and of course, the people that inform my work as a chef.”
On Friday, January 17, Mr. Miller will be signing his book at The Multicultural Center of the South in Shreveport from 4:30-6:30 PM.
Among the partners for the event is Cuisine Noir magazine.
Chef Harris says, “It is my goal for Mr. Miller to meet some of Shreveport’s historic figures in the civil rights movement, historians and lovers of food.”
