Eat Kentucky: A Southern Food Podcast

EK 20 - A Summer of Unrest - Adrian Miller Returns

August 6, 2020

Eat Kentucky welcomes back Adrian Miller, James Beard Award winning author of Soul Food. If you haven’t listened to EK Episode 17 where Adrian and I talk about Chef Dolly Johnson, an African-American White House chef from Lexington, I would encourage you to do so. There we also explore Adrian’s background and discuss his books.

I asked Adrian to come back on the podcast to discuss his article about Louisville barbecue pit master and restaurateur David McAtee, who was killed during this summer’s Louisville protests. We discuss his legacy and the McAtee Community Kitchen from the Lee Initiative that he inspired.

Also, one of the recent brand reassessments from this summer has led to the retiring of the Aunt Jemima brand. That, too, has a Kentucky connection, as the first person to assume the Aunt Jemima role was Nancy Green from Montgomery County, Kentucky.

Adrian offers his insight and expertise in recognizing both of these Kentucky culinary figures.
