We discussed Red Rooster, race, Harlem, and the need for more diversity in the industry.Â It was great to share the floor with Kathleen McElroy, a senior editor at the Times and the paper's former Dining Editor.
Thanks again to the New York Times for hosting me, and I hope everyone enjoyed the samples from Red Rooster that we brought: Lady Baltimore; Beef Patties; Cornbread and Tomato Jam; Nuts; Corn Tacos; and Fried Yard Bird.
And it didn't end there.Â After the event, I thrilled to see the newsroom and the Page One Room, as Kathleen gave us a tour.
