If you've dined at the James Beard House, you know that the experience includes an opportunity to walk through its storied kitchen and observe the night's visiting chefs at work. It's an exciting bit of behind-the-scenes entrée that you won't find at most restaurants, but it's still just a glimpse of what it takes to pull off a dinner in this one-of-a-kind space. Preparation can involve months of planning and coordination—and sometimes even a rehearsal or two.

The JBF Award–winning team at Friday Arts has produced a video about Philadelphia's Night Kitchen Bakery & Cafe planning its first Beard House appearance. The video documents the team's initial menu design and tails them all the way to New York City for their event, which was held in April. The video also features insights from our director of house programming, Izabela Wojcik. Watch below:
