Food & Culture in the African American Tradition
The definition of soul food is changing in the African American community. And that change is in part because of African American chefs and bakers consciously creating awareness with diverse healthy food options. We talk to three chefs hoping to make a difference in what we eat and how we eat. Tarik Abdullah is a rising star in the chef world. He recently appeared on ABC’s, “The Taste”. Lillian Hill is the baking brains behind the vegan based treats from Brown Sugar Baking Company in the Central District. Lillian’s husband, Dennis Comer is the owner of a catering company, the urban buggy in the Central District. Comer also has a garden that he developed as part of a 3 year pilot program from Seattle Neighborhoods.
