Carolina Gold Rice Symposium
18-20 August 2005
A consortium of academic and private groups under the direction of the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation (CGRF) will sponsor a symposium in Charleston, SC, on Rice. This public meeting will explore the biology, history, culinary applications, nutrition, dissemination, agriculture, and cultural influence of Carolina Gold Rice, the staple crop of the Carolina and Georgia Lowcountry, and Carolina White Rice, the southern crop that would become the favored rice of South America. A particular interest of the Symposium will be to explore the recent revival of Carolina Gold agriculture in light of the growing public hunger for foods and foodways that express traditional southern identity.
The Carolina Gold Rice Symposium, August 18-20, 2005, will gather food enthusiasts, chefs, scholars, and makers of traditional and regional foods for panel discussions, keynote lectures, tours of Carolina Gold Rice fields, and a rice bread competition. It will feature elegant events highlighting dishes prepared with Carolina Gold Rice by prominent local chefs and caterers, viewing of local art and material culture exhibits featuring the world of the Carolina Rice Planters, and a Lowcountry BBQ of rare breeds of rice-fed poultry and pork at Middleton Place Plantation.
