Remembering Jim

Today marks the 26th anniversary of James Beard’s death. He brought simple, accessible, and delicious food to a generation of Americans through his many cookbooks, TV appearances, and cooking classes. Beard championed local, seasonal eating long before it was chic and helped American cuisine to reach the elevated level of its European counterparts. At the James Beard Foundation we are proud to carry on the legacy of this larger than life man. Here’s to you Jim.
