It's the culinary industry's biggest night! Join us this evening for the 2016 James Beard Awards Gala, taking place in the great city of Chicago for the second year in a row.
Not joining us at Lyric Opera of Chicago? That's okay—it's easy to follow along at home. You can tune into our live broadcast at jamesbeard.org/awards starting at 6:00 P.M. Central. JBF executive vice president Mitchell Davis and Kat Kinsman will be covering the chef-studded red carpet on Facebook Live starting at 5:00 P.M. Central. As always, we'll be live-tweeting the ceremony @beardfoundation. Make sure you're following us on Instagram, too, for all the action backstage, in the press room, and at the tasting reception.
And in case you missed them, here are last week's Book, Broadcast & Journalism Award winners.
