James Beard Award Logo 2012 James Beard Foundation Award Winners!

The James Beard Foundation Awards shine a spotlight on the best and brightest talent in the food and beverage industry.

"The Oscars of the food world."--Time Magazine

Covering all aspects of the industry--from chefs and restaurateurs to cookbook authors and food journalists to restaurant designers and architects and more--the James Beard Foundation Awards are the highest honors for food and beverage professionals working in America. The awards are presented each spring at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center. Nominees and winners are fêted at a weekend of gala events in New York City that has become the social and gastronomic highlight of the year.

James Beard was known for many things, but first and foremost he was a teacher--a generous mentor and supporter of chefs. He was a tireless champion for American cuisine and those who sought to advance its place in the world of food. These awards honor this legacy, celebrating the very best and brightest in our now world-class arena.
