A big conference coming to Little Rock this December is a chance to experience some culinary excellence in the Rock City.  The 2008 USA Rice Outlook Conference will be held December 7-9 at the Peabody Hotel.  In addition to a trade show and educational sessions focusing on key issues for rice farmers and the U.S. rice industry, several guest events are being held -- including a Rice "VIP" Event at the Capital Hotel with Chef Lee Richardson.  The Sunday afternoon gathering includes a Champagne welcome followed by a four course tasting menu.  Guests will receive a DVD of the tour and a collection of recipes sampled.  Cost is $85.  For more information, call (800) 888-RICE (7423) or check out the USA Rice Federation website.
