Brennan's of Houston Welcomes Special Guest Adrian Miller for Two Enriching Culinary Events



This month, Brennan’s of Houston is honored to welcome “Soul Food Scholar” and James Beard Award-winning author Adrian Miller for two back-to-back culinary events.

On July 30, Danny and Adrian will collaborate on a special cooking class that explores the similarities between soul food and Creole cuisine. As Chef Danny demonstrates how to prepare soul food dishes such as Creole "Black-Eyed Pea" Gumbo, Hill Country Quail & Waffles, and Cooper Farm Peach Cobbler, Adrian will share his knowledge, illuminating the nuances of this dynamic culinary culture.

On the following evening, July 31, the Big Easy Dinner, the restaurant’s family-style supper series, will feature a fried chicken feast alongside a thoughtful conversation with Adrian about the roots of soul food and its future direction. Guests can indulge in Corn Flake Fried Chicken, and comforting sides such as Johnetta's greens, black-eyed peas, stewed okra & tomatoes, Miller's cornbread, macaroni and cheese, and banana pudding.

”Whether cooking at the James Beard House or hosting Beard dinners at the restaurant, the Brennan family has always supported the Foundation, so hosting a James Beard award-winning writer was a natural fit,” says owner Alex Brennan-Martin. “We are eager to welcome Adrian and have some fun!”

Adrian Miller’s James Beard Award-winning book, Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine, One Plate at a Time, will be available to purchase at both events for $30.
