Local Author’s Book on African-American White House Chefs

Adrian Miller’s book launches at History Colorado museum.

Just in time for Presidents’ Day, The President’s Kitchen Cabinet: The Story of the African Americans Who Have Fed Our Presidents from the Washingtons to the Obamas by award-winning Denver chef, author and soul food scholar Adrian Miller is now out.

It officially launches in the Mile High City on Saturday, February 18. The celebration starts with a pricy VIP party early, but from 5:30 to 7 p.m., the event is free and open to the public. In the course of the afternoon and evening, it includes former presidential chefs, presidential reenactors, presidential food and drink (from real White House recipes) and music (with the occasional campaign song thrown in) — some, of course, just for the VIP part. History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway, Denver.
