New JBF Shirts from Flavour Gallery

James Beard Foundation t-shirts from Flavour Gallery


When our partnership with Flavour Gallery debuted last summer, we gave you the opportunity to show some love for JBF by donning one of the food-themed attire company's "JBF Collection" t-shirts. (The company also produces clothing for top chefs like Chris Cosentino, Johnny Iuzzini, and Andrew Zimmern, our 2013 Chefs & Champagne® New York honoree.) Now, on the one-year anniversary of this collaboration, Flavour Gallery has unveiled two new JBF styles: the "Peace, Love, Champagne", and another shirt that features a quote about James Beard's affection for pork. Each is available in men and women's cuts. Best all, 15 percent of proceeds go straight to JBF.

ShortDocs Challenge: Cast Your Vote for the People's ShortDoc Award Winner

The James Beard Foundation is partnering with the Third Coast International Audio Festival's 2013 ShortDocs Challenge


As we reported a few months back, we've partnered with the Third Coast International Audio Festival (TCIAF), a curator of "sound-rich stories", on its ShortDocs Challenge, an annual competition that invites storytelling enthusiasts to create a brief radio piece inspired by the theme of the 2013 JBF Food Conference, appetite. TCIAF encourages entrants to "interpret 'appetite' broadly, from the literal to the figurative. Consider stories of hunger and obesity, craving and satiety, profit and desire."


After some serious listening, the TCIAF team whittled... Read more >

Recipe: Peach Tarte Tatin

Recipe for peach tarte tatin, courtesy of the James Beard Foundation


For a high-summer spin on classic tarte tatin, chef Corey Heyer of central New Jersey's Bernards Inn trades apples for juicy peaches. The variation doesn't stop there: instead of cooking the fruit over a layer of sugar and butter, Heyer makes the caramel separately, then adds the peaches and simmers them until puckery. The fruit is then transferred to a pie dish and draped with a sheet of puff pastry before baking. In keeping with tradition, there's still the swift drama of flipping the pan and the big reveal of the tarte's fruit-bejeweled face.


The recipe may not sit well with purists, but that just leaves more for us. (And sooner than we know it, there will be plenty of time for apples.)

Recipe: White Chocolate–Lemon Verbena Panna Cotta with Raspberries and Pistachios


When the North Fork Table & Inn's Claudia Fleming teamed up with Godiva® to create a dish for JBF’s Chefs & Champagne® last year, she faced the challenge of fashioning a dessert that was anchored in chocolate and yet light on its feet. She found a dazzling solution in oft-maligned white chocolate, which proved to be a seamless enhancement to classic panna cotta. Infusing the cream-based dessert with heady lemon verbena added a summery vibe, which was boosted by a verbena-scented raspberry compote and sugar-slicked pistachios.
