Their mission is to simply foster the appreciation and development of gastronomy by preserving and promulgating our culinary heritage, as well as recognizing excellence in all aspects of the culinary arts. Often called the “Oscars of the Food World,” the Annual James Beard Foundation Awards is the industry’s biggest party, honoring the finest chefs, restaurants, restaurant designers and journalists in the country.
