"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.

These awards honor this legacy, celebrating the very best and brightest in our now world-class arena.
