A NIGHT WITH FAT RICE
Wednesday, March 25, 6-9pm @ Basque Center (21+)
Foodfort is excited to bring back the annual chef-farmer-food community dinner (21+) on Wednesday, March 25, 6-9pm, at the Basque Center. This year we’re featuring James Beard Award-winning chefs Abe Conlon & Adrienne Lo of Chicago restaurant Fat Rice.
Fat Rice is a celebration of the unique cuisines of Portuguese speaking Luso-Asian provinces, with an emphasis on Macau, China. As a major hub of the spice trade beginning in the 16th century, the tiny peninsula and adjoining islands of Macau are home to a quickly diminishing culture and an almost forgotten cuisine.
Tickets are $150 (price includes wine). Only 100 seats available!
