Every May at Lincoln Center in New York City a whole bunch of restaurant professionals gather to pat each other on the back and celebrate the industry that they (and the collective Food Republic staff) love so much. While we’re of the opinion that “everybody is a winner” in the cutthroat, oftentimes heartbreaking restaurant industry, the James Beard Foundation has been designated as the givers of medals to the best of the best in cooking, bartending, service, design and restaurateur-ing. Today they announced a major addition to the program: Best Baker.

Patience, friends.

Live From The 2014 James Beard Awards

Restaurant/chef world's biggest night is tonight
May 5, 2014 10:00 am

This evening the James Beard Foundation will give out their annual awards at New York’s David H. Koch Theater in Lincoln Center. This theme is Sounds of the City, which explores the connections between food and music — with Ted Allen serving as host and MC. The Beard Awards have long been considered the most prestigious culinary awards presented in America, due both to its legacy (they've been given out since 1990) and a judging panel made up of industry experts and peers — as opposed to say journalists or anonymous inspectors. The event will be live streamed starting at 6 p.m. EST.
