JBF Editors

January 06, 2017


Here’s what’s coming up at the James Beard House and around the country:

Wednesday, January 11, 12:00 P.M. 

Beard on Books

The Philadelphia-based Cook N Solo restaurant group draws crowds for the Texas-style pit game at Percy Street Barbecue and the mouthwatering fried chicken at Federal Donuts (not to mention the equally popular Abe Fisher and Dizengoff), but at the center of this budding empire is the modern Israeli cuisine on offer at JBF Award winner Michael Solomonov’s Zahav. Solomonov, a titan of tahini, shares the inspirations and recipes behind some of the restaurant’s most popular dishes in his cookbook, Zahav, which was written with his partner Steven Cook and won the 2016 JBF Award for Book of the Year.

Wednesday, January 11, 7:00 P.M. 

American Heirloom

Diners will be in for a treat when Art Smith brings his Southern cooking expertise to the Beard House. With his team from the newly opened Blue Door Kitchen & Garden, this JBF Humanitarian of the Year will showcase heirloom ingredients, heritage stories, and heartfelt cookery through a cornucopia of Midwestern produce.
