We're excited to announce our partnership with Simmer, a new app that allows you to generate step-by-step recipe videos that you can create, watch, and share from your very own kitchen. In the coming weeks and months, we'll share instructional videos that will teach you how to create tantalizing dishes from JBF Award winners, Beard House chefs, and even Beard himself, all prepared in James Beard's historic New York City kitchen.
The culinary industry's biggest night is just around the corner, so start planning a gathering with your food-loving friends for a screening of the James Beard Awards! On Monday, May 4, the 2015 ceremony will be streamed live from Lyric Opera of Chicago, where your favorite food world stars and hometown heroes will take the stage to claim their silver medallions. No watch party would be complete without popcorn, and this elegant, truffle-inflected recipe from JBF Award winner Patrick O'Connell will have you voted Outstanding Chef in your own circle. Below, watch senior editor Elena North-Kelly walk you through the simple, crowd-pleasing recipe in our latest Simmer video.
