James Beard Foundation Awards

The James Beard Foundation Awards were established in 1990, when the James Beard Foundation expanded its chef awards and combined them with Cook’s Magazine’s Who’s Who of American Cooking and French’s Food and Beverage Book Awards. In addition to the chef, restaurant, and book awards, journalism awards were added in 1993, which expanded to broadcast media in 1994, and restaurant design awards were first given in 1995. You can click the links below to see the winners in the non-book categories.

The awards are voted on by more than 600 culinary professionals, including previous award winners. Recipients receive a medallion etched with the image of James Beard and a certificate from the Foundation. The Awards are presented on or around May 5th, which was James Beard’s actual birthday.

The titles in this list are “hotlinked” to the library’s catalog, for all those titles currently owned by the Lincoln City Libraries. For titles not currently owned by our system, please consider requesting them through our Interlibrary Loan service.
