The envelopes have been unsealed, the winners have been toasted, and the hangovers have subsided. Next order of business: photo highlights from the fabulous 2015 James Beard Awards. First we revisit our Book, Broadcast & Journalism Awards Dinner, which took place on April 24 at Pier Sixty in New York City. The lovely Carla Hall (shown above with JBF president Susan Ungaro) presided over the ceremony, attended by the best and brightest in food media, while our guests enjoyed a fantastic multi-course tasting menu throughout the evening. Check out the highlights below, and view the entire photo album here.
