James Beard Awards (Cookbooks)

James Beard Awards (Cookbooks):  The James Beard Foundation Awards recognize culinary professionals for excellence and achievement in their field. The Awards are presented by The James Beard Foundation, a not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to furthering the appreciation and practice of fine food and beverage. The James Beard Foundation Awards were established in 1990 through the merging of the two most prominent culinary awards in North America at the time: The R.T. French Tastemaker Cookbook Awards and the Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America. To learn more about the James Beard Foundation or the award visit them online at:
