Exploring Omusubi and Onigiri in a Japanese Tea House with Elizabeth Andoh

An ancient food still popular at modern convenience stores, Japan’s rice bundles can be found tucked into lunchboxes everywhere. Formed into classic triangles, cute pandas, or pressed into colorful layers, the basics are few—rice, a filling, and perhaps a wrapper—but the possibilities are nearly infinite. Elizabeth Andoh, a scholar of Japanese cuisine, will guide us through a thousand years of culinary history with an illustrated lecture to place these distinctly Japanese snacks in their cultural context.

The reception—featuring sake, tea, omigiri and omusubi— and lecture will take place at Globus Washitsu, a serene, authentic teahouse.

The exhibition title, ‘맛:[MAT],’ literally meaning ‘taste’ in Korean, describes how the 맛:[MA:T] As It Is exhibition focuses exclusively on the notions of taste of Korea and the Korean attitude towards nature and man-made objects. Formulated from a designer’s perspective, the exhibition explores several dynamic aspects of ‘taste’ that relate not only to the consumption of food, but to the different styles of cooking and sharing food, the objects that surround food, and the physical and emotional ‘taste’ of the dining environment and experience as a whole.

North Carolina Rice Festival

North Carolina Rice Festival will be at Brunswick Riverwalk at Belville. With the permanent settlement of the Lower Cape Fear in the 1720s by a group of wealthy South Carolina planters, a new agricultural staple was introduced into North Carolina—rice. Rice by this time had proved to be the “golden grain” of South Carolina as tobacco had earlier become Virginia’s “golden leaf.” By 1700, rice was established as a major crop for the colonists. That year 300 tons of American rice, referred to as "Carolina Gold Rice," was shipped to England.

Through the end of November, you can see a number of massive straw sculptures nestled in a field in the country's Niigata Prefecture—dinosaurs, a giant crab, even a stately praying mantis. Amy Goda, a local artist, has been turning leftover straw from the region's annual rice harvest into works of art since 2013. Since then, the Internet has caught wind of her work, turning the event into a months-long exhibit open to the public.
