In Harlem, a neighborhood filled with myriad immigrant communities, rice can be thought of as a representation of the area's diverse culture. No one knows this better than James Beard Award-winning Chef Chef JJ Johnson, whose restaurant FIELDTRIP celebrates culture through the shared experience of rice. 


Join Johnson along with Oscar Lorenzzi, chef of Contento in East Harlem, and farmer and educator Anisha Rathod, in conversation with New York Times Food staff reporter, Priya Krishna, as they discuss the experiences of diaspora communities rooted in Harlem and connected by rice, a common ingredient with countless stories to tell.  Your ticket includes a rice bowl from FIELDTRIP and a glass of sake from Brooklyn Kura, plus all-day admission to the Museum.
