Giveaway: Win a Copy of The James Beard Foundation’s Best of the Best!JBF Editors
February 27, 2012
After 25 years of celebrating James Beard and American cuisine inside his Greenwich Village townhouse, we’re thrilled to give fans of great food a way to celebrate in their own kitchens. Our first cookbook, The James Beard Foundation’s Best of the Best: A 25th Anniversary Celebration of America’s Outstanding Chefs, honors Beard’s impact on the way we eat and spotlights the accomplishments of the 21 incredible chefs who have earned our coveted Outstanding Chef Award, from Wolfgang Puck to Tom Colicchio. Featuring intimate profiles written by author Kit Wohl, a foreword by Martha Stewart, gorgeous photography, and plenty of mouthwatering recipes (think smoky peanut mole with grilled quail from Rick Bayless; Thomas Keller’s elegant caviar with brioche and avocado mousse; and a “salmon bacon,” lettuce, and tomato sandwich from Judy Rodgers), this special cookbook will be savored by food lovers for years.
