Awards Watch: Theme and Hosts Announced

The 2013 James Beard Awards


The Awards news just keeps on coming. Today we're excited to announce the theme of the 2013 Beard Awards: Lights! Camera! Taste! Spotlight on Food & Film. In homage to the role that food has played on the silver screen, we'll be highlighting iconic culinary scenes in cinema throughout our Awards festivities. We've also asked the chefs who are cooking at this year's reception to create dishes inspired by a favorite food moment in a movie.  


In hosting news, we've tapped Ted Allen to emcee the Book, Broadcast & Journalism Awards Dinner on Friday, May 3; award–winning actor Stanley Tucci will assume hosting duties at our Lincoln Center gala on Monday, May 6.
