In this insightful and eclectic history, Adrian Miller delves into the influences, ingredients, and innovations that make up the soul food tradition. Focusing each chapter on the culinary and social history of one dish--such as fried chicken, chitlins, yams, greens, and "red drinks"--Adrian uncovers how it got on the soul food plate and what it means for African American culture and identity. Chef Alex has created a menu direct from the chapters of SOUL FOOD and Adrian will share his knowledge and the history of the foods we will be dining on. Adrian Miller is a writer, attorney, and certified barbecue judge who lives in Denver, Colorado. He has served as a special assistant to President Bill Clinton, a senior policy analyst for Colorado Governor Bill Ritter Jr., and a Southern Foodways Alliance board member.

In fact, Stephen Gill is the guy to talk to if you want to create a culture of learning in your organization and then get concrete evidence that the culture is resulting in performance improvements.

While Mexican cooking varies from one region of the country to another, no State compares with Oaxaca in the variety of cuisines found within it's borders. Know as the "Land of the Seven Moles," Oaxaca is blessed with an abundance of vegetables grown in the central valley; fish and shellfish from the southern coast and Isthmus regions; and a year-round supply of tropical fruit from the lush area bordering Veracruz. Roadhouse Chef Bob Bennett, with his passion for cooking traditional Mexican, will prepare a traditionally made menu full of flavor and Oaxacan staples: corn, empanadas, tamales, lentils, black beans and of course, chocolate and moles.

Shawn Askinosie challenges the notion that nobody on their deathbed wishes they'd have spent more time at the office. He's that kind of guy. In this session of the Speaker Series, Shawn wants to tell you his story, the story of how a criminal defense attorney became a chocolate maker. The story of how his business, Askinosie Chocolate, wins more awards for its chocolate than we can keep track of. The story of how his small 15 person business makes a huge positive impact on all it comes in contact with the world over. The story of how you can go about creating meaningful work, creating a business with a vocation.
