In honor of a wildly successful weekend at the James Beard Foundation’s Taste America in Phoenix, this TBT we’re looking back at a special moment event planner Robyn Lee and her mother shared with our namesake while attending one of his cooking classes. Robyn has continued her connection with Beard through her role as event planner for the weekend of Taste America events in Phoenix, where guests enjoyed an exclusive collaborative dinner by JBF Award winners Michel Nischan  and Chris Bianco, along with chef demos and tastings. While the chance to learn from the "Dean of American Cookery" is no longer possible, the next best way to get your fix is to visit the Beard House right here in New York City. Check out our calendar of events and plan your next visit.
