Event – JBF Chef’s Night Out MAY8, Awards Gala MAY9 – we’ll be there

UPDATE: Anyone and Everyone food came to this star studded event. From live blogging in the Press Room to Keg Stands at the Afterparties, there was nothing but love, baby! Our favorite was the Corn Sorbet w/ bottarga crumble, fried kale and Uni from Uchi Austin! The Mushroom brioche w/ the black truffle soup at Guy Savoy was no slouch either!

The Utimate Melting Pot

“I’m always asked what the dominating factor in American cuisine is,” James Beard once wrote, “and my reply is that it’s the many ethnic groups, each of which brought its own ideas of food to this country.” What better way to celebrate this blending of cuisines—this melting pot—than with the unique dishes of a diverse group of chefs? To cook at this year’s Awards, we’ve invited both chefs who have emigrated from various places to America, and chefs who were born in America but who were inspired by the cuisines of other lands. The menu will be a combination of “fine traditional cookery” and “mingled cuisines,” to use Beard’s words, that will certainly present the exciting flavors of the great American melting pot.
