Video: James Beard's Recipe for Cioppino

Growing up in Oregon, James Beard was raised on the seasonal bounty of the Pacific ocean, so it’s no surprise that cioppino was one of his favorite ways to highlight seafood. The dish originates in San Francisco, where Italian immigrants infused the local daily catch with the flavors and philosophy of their native cuisine. The result is a light tomato-based stew, versatile enough to be made all year long. Watch the video... Read more >

Video: JBF Award Winner Hugh Acheson's Sweet Onion Soup for the Home Cook's Soul

 

When JBF Taste America rolls into Los Angeles, one expects a weekend of culinary glamor befitting a host city such as Tinseltown. True to form, JBF Award winner Hugh Acheson, our headlining All-Star for the weekend, collaborated with local stars Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook and set the bar high with a lavish four-course feast that criss-crossed the nation in red-carpet style. The next day, at Sur La Table, however, Acheson chose to focus on the simpler side of gastronomy, forgoing the glitz to demonstrate the building blocks of a simple onion soup. “A soup is made by bringing about flavor,” Acheson advised, drawing parallels with the development of a home cook’s repertoire: “What cooking really is, to me, is a chance to spend time with...

Video: Powerhouse Women Chefs at the Beard House

 

From Julia Child to M.F.K. Fisher, James Beard spent much of his life advocating for the place of women in the culinary landscape of the United States. Here at the James Beard Foundation, we strive to carry on this legacy through the Beard Awards, our Women in Culinary Leadership Program, and of course, by letting talent speak for itself in the Beard House kitchen. This summer, a formidable team of female chefs from across the Northeast collaborated on a sumptuous menu celebrating the best of the season's savory and sweet offerings. Watch the video above to get their perspectives on the tribulations and triumphs of being a woman on the line, how they plan to continue using their passion and techniques, and more.

Video: JBF Award Winner Mark Ladner's Appetizing Advice

 

Hot off his win for Best Chef: New York City at last year’s Beard Awards, Del Posto's Mark Ladner made a triumphant return to Chicago earlier this fall as one of our JBF Taste America All-Stars. After leaving guests swooning the night before with a one-of-a-kind collaborative dinner, Ladner appeared at Sur La Table to prove that his lauded Italian fare can be translated to the home kitchen. Demonstrating two Italian-inspired canapés, lobster and mayonnaise tramezzini (classic Venetian tea sandwiches) and chickpea fritters with truffles and fontina cheese, Ladner advocated for the innate power of a gooey, molten cheese center, and advised starting all your parties as he does—with sparkling wine...

Antonelli detailed visions of sustainable architecture crafted by silkworms or funghi, extra-corporeal digesters to help future microbiome-deficient generations, and even the simultaneously thought-provoking and nauseating promise of cheese made from armpit bacteria.
