James Beard Foundation Award for Excellence medallion

The James Beard Foundation Awards are annual awards presented by the James Beard Foundation to recognize culinary professionals in the United States.[1][2] The awards recognize chefs, restaurateurs, authors and journalists each year, scheduled around James Beard's May 5 birthday.[3][4] The media awards are presented at a dinner in New York City; the chef and restaurant awards were also presented in New York until 2015, when the Foundation's annual gala moved to Chicago.[5] Chicago will continue to host the Awards until 2027.[6][7]
