From the Rice Paddies to Your Plate

At this Demo & Dine, you’ll get the chance to watch this expert chef cook from his brand new book, “The Simple Art of Rice: Recipes from Around the World for the Heart of Your Table,” and then you’ll get to enjoy the delicious rice dishes that he creates. Don’t miss this rare chance to watch Chef JJ Johnson in action, getting an up-close look at his technique and style.
