The James Beard Foundation’s Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America is a cadre of the most accomplished food and beverage professionals in the country. Though they represent a diverse cross-section of the food and beverage industry—from chefs to journalists to farmers to business executives to scholars—each has been identified by his or her peers as having displayed remarkable talent and achievement. Every member of the Who’s Who has contributed in some substantial way to America’s constantly evolving culinary scene.
One of our six 2014 Who's Who inductees, Edward Behr is the editor and publisher of the quarterly food magazine, The Art of Eating. First published as an eight-page newsletter in 1986, it has grown to become one of the most respected magazines about food and wine.
Watch the short video below, which celebrates Behr's work and aired at the 2014 James Beard Awards. Stay tuned for videos about our other 2014 inductees.
