Events & Speaking Engagements
Thanks so much for your involvement in our event last night. It was an absolute honor and joy to have you be our feature speaker. You are a natural storyteller. I learned a lot, laughed, and so enjoyed hearing you speak about your work and what James Beard has meant to you.

It was a rare combination of captivating storytelling and solid scholarship. I’ve picked my way through Soul Food and now want to start your new work.

Moderating Panel Experiences
Adrian was recommended to us and agreed to moderate two panels . . . Adrian did a wonderful job of formulating and asking his own questions that generated great insights from our panelists and made the issues come alive for the audience. Adrian was a good time manager and handled the audience participation portion very well. In the feedback that we got from our evaluation forms, the participants felt the panel discussions were very informative.

Using Adrian Miller’s, Soul Food, in a university history course on immigration and ethnicity opened up students’ minds to the significance of food as a vehicle of change, exchange, and understanding why history matters—with a lot of yummy fun along the way! One student described it as, “one of my favorite books that I have ever read. It’s so interesting to read a thoughtful and well-developed book that so accurately details soul food.” Thanks to Adrian Miller, students noted their desire to dig deeper into their own family history, an unexpected but appreciated outcome. Peppered with humor, the book kept all students’ attention and continues to resonate. I highly recommend Soul Food for aficionados, historians, wide-ranging university courses, curious cooks—or just the curious!

…Mr. Miller was very knowledgeable on his subject, and made a strong impression on the staff at Food and Nutrition Service — and we know about food! We’d highly recommend Mr. Miller as a speaker on any of the topics he offers.

…Adrian deftly managed to be in two adjoining rooms at once with double screens. It was an amazing feat and the feedback from the attendees was very enthusiastic, and they then shared back with other members who had not made it that Adrian should present again.
