Anointed the “Dean of American cookery” by the New York Times in 1954, James Beard was a pioneer of American foodie who laid the groundwork for the food revolution that put America at the forefront of global gastronomy. His townhouse in New York City’s West Village was at the forefront of America’s food revolution, and today the “James Beard House” is the Carnegie Hall for chefs.
