Reel Food: The Berkshire Cure-All

 

Ever wondered what happens behind the scenes at a James Beard House dinner? When Brian Alberg and a team of chefs came to the House recently for their annual Berkshire Cure-All event, they showed us this video about their 2013 visit. Featuring interviews with the farmers who grew the food for their seven-course menu, behind-the-scenes looks at prep and service, and even some late-night trash-talking at Prune, it's a true taste of the Beard House experience.

Reel Food: Night Kitchen Bakery & Cafe at the James Beard House

 

If you've dined at the James Beard House, you know that the experience includes an opportunity to walk through its storied kitchen and observe the night's visiting chefs at work. It's an exciting bit of behind-the-scenes entrée that you won't find at most restaurants, but it's still just a glimpse of what it takes to pull off a dinner in this one-of-a-kind space. Preparation can involve months of planning and coordination—and sometimes even a rehearsal or two.

 

The JBF Award–winning team at Friday Arts has produced a video about Philadelphia's Night Kitchen Bakery & Cafe planning its first Beard House appearance. The video documents the team's initial menu design and tails them all the way to New York City for their event, which was held in April. The video also features insights from our director of house programming, Izabela Wojcik. Watch below:

Opening Today: A Place at the Table

Tom Colicchio didn't live-tweet this week's Top Chef finale, but he had a decent excuse: the JBF Award winner was attending the premiere of A Place at the Table, a new documentary about hunger in America, co-directed by his wife, Lori Silverbush, and Kristi Jacobson. The film, which was shown at Sundance, follows three individuals who struggle with food insecurity, and includes commentary from Colicchio, actor Jeff Bridges, author Raj Patel, nutrition policy expert Marion Nestle, and others. A Place at the Table opens today, so have a look at the list of theaters that are showing this important work. Watch the official trailer below:

Video: Peter Chang Returns to the James Beard House

Nearly three years after he was profiled in The New Yorker (subscription required), the famously itinerant Peter Chang seems to have gingerly set down roots. He splits his dinner shifts among three different Chinese restaurants in central Virginia, and though it's said that his exact location on any given night remains anybody's guess, we managed to pin him down for a celebration of the Year of the Snake at the James Beard House. You can watch a short video of Chang working in the kitchen below. A film from his 2012 event can be seen here.
