Event description

Description

His name graces the highest culinary honor in the American food world today: the James Beard Awards. While chefs all around the country aspire to win this “Culinary Oscar,” many of those same chefs know very little about the man behind the medal. James Beard: America’s First Foodie chronicles a century of food through Beard’s life, combining celebrity interviews, archival footage, and whimsical animations in a rich recipe that reveals his impact, spirit, genius, and ever-growing legacy. Written and directed by Elizabeth Federici, the film is produced by Elizabeth Federici and Kathleen Squires. It is a co-production of Federici Films and American Masters Pictures.

Please join us for this special screening and lively discussion with the filmmakers, Mitchell Davis, Executive Vice President, James Beard Foundation, and Fabio Parasecoli, Associate Professor and Director of Food Studies Initiatives. Sponsored by the James Beard Foundation and the Food Studies Program at The New School.
