SATURDAY 10 FEBRUARY 2018

Please join The American at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 10, 2018, in support of the James Beard Foundation’s mission to celebrate, nurture and honor America’s finest culinary students, chefs and scribes. Our James Beard Foundation Benefit Dinner, a delicious tradition in behalf of the renowned culinary arts organization, is the nation’s longest running Friends of James Beard fundraiser event.

The late James Beard’s visionary cooking concepts forever altered the course and global perception of American food culture. He inspired generations of food enthusiasts and directly nurtured the development of countless chefs and cookbook authors. His palpable influence continues to guide the modern approach and appreciation of fine cuisine in the United States.

In his memory and to sustain his spirit of innovation, the James Beard Foundation administers several diverse initiatives, including educational programs, industry awards, scholarships for culinary students, publications and chef advocacy training. Each month, the Foundation also features acclaimed and up-and-coming chefs at the historic James Beard House in Greenwich Village.
