Adrian Miller traces the journey of this cuisine from West Africa to the American West by showing what people of West African heritage ate before European contact, during The Middle Passage, during slavery in the American South, after Emancipation, and while migrating and settling in other parts of the United States, including Pittsburgh. Miller ends by identifying the current and future trends in soul food. In the end, you’ll see that soul food is healthier than its current image suggests. The material for this presentation is drawn from Miller's James Beard Award-winning book, Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine, One Plate at a Time.
