Lucky Rice

Last week my work with City Harvest afforded me the opportunity to attend Lucky Rice's Grand Feast at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel at the Time Warner Center in Manhattan. This food lovers paradise was hosted by Lisa Ling. With tastings from the finest Chefs' in New York, I was happy to be a small part of this evening. With fantastic views of the Central Park, the participating restaurants shared their most interesting and delicious culinary inventions, as hundreds of hungry guests filled the ballroom.
