Early Years of JBF Awards Remembered



May 4, 2015 – The 25th annual James Beard Foundation Awards take place tonight in Chicago.  This year is the first time the Awards have taken place away from the Foundation’s home base of New York City. It’s also the first time I’ve written my own personal remembrances about the start of The James Beard Foundation Awards and my significant role from the beginning and for more than 16 years. Looking back is bittersweet and filled with pride at the history we made and the lives we impacted.

Keeping in mind that the history of the Awards in those early years may be lost as those associated from the start are no longer with us or with  the Foundation-I share this article on  Eater.com:  http://www.eater.com/2015/5/4/8539409/james-beard-awards-history-early-years-melanie-young#4733440 –
