Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The James Beard Foundation Awards were established in 1990 and are often called "The Oscars of Food." Held on the first weekend in May, the Awards ceremonies honor the finest chefs, restaurants, wine professionals, journalists, cookbook authors, restaurant designers, and electronic media professionals in the country. More than 600 culinary professionals are involved in the voting process. Recipients receive a bronze medallion etched with the image of the late James Beard as well as a certificate from the Foundation, but no cash prizes. More than 1,600 people attended the 2007 awards reception at New York's Lincoln Center. Although the awards tend to focus on upscale dining in large cities, since 1998 there has been an "America's Classics" category which honors legendary family-owned restaurants across the country. The "America's Classics" winners routinely draw the biggest applause of the night at the awards ceremony.show more
