Historic Vegan Dinner

Prestigious James Beard Foundation opens its doors to host its first all vegan dinner.

On November 3, the James Beard Foundation (JBF) made history by hosting its first vegan dinner at the Beard House in New York City. The non-profit organization is famous for promoting the culinary arts. It offers scholarships to culinary students, supports local chefs, and honors culinary standouts at the annual James Beard Foundation Awards. Tuesday marked a new milestone for JBF, when it invited renowned vegan chefs and restaurateurs Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby of Philadelphia's Horizons to prepare its first entirely vegan dinner. Famous for crafting creative, 100 percent vegan cuisine, Landau and Jacoby served a decadent five-course meal, including caramelized celery root ravioli and heirloom pumpkin cheesecake.
