Food is the obvious name of the game here at the James Beard Foundation, but this month, we're dipping our toes into the wide world of sports.
Taste of Tennis, the world's premier food and tennis experience, drafts professional athletes and influential chefs for a unique tasting event with a sports twist. Each year, a portion of the event's proceeds benefits an organization that exemplifies passion, dedication, and excellence. The 14th Annual BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis is proud to name the James Beard Foundation as its 2013 beneficiary. In addition to amazing food, this one-of-a-kind experience on August 22 will feature a variety of themed lounges, signature cocktails, and appearances by host Serena Williams and headlining chef and JBF Award winner Marcus Samuelsson. (Other participating chef talent includes JBF Award winner Michael Solomonov, Top Chef Masters winner Floyd Cardoz, and many more.)
