James Beard Festival Washington DC

RJ Cooper

Recommended Posts

The James Beard Foundation is embarking on it first-ever national food festival, landing in 19 cities, including Washington, this fall. Dubbed Taste America, the event kicks off September 28 with a benefit dinner prepared by Vidalia and Bistro Bis chef RJ Cooper (who won the 2007 James Beard Chef of the Year for the Mid-Atlantic), in addition to other Beard heavyweights, including Bebo's Roberto Donna and Ris Lacoste. The dinner is open to the public for a fee.

On September 29, the festival will head to Williams-Sonoma Mazza Gallerie from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m, where Cooper will host a cooking demonstration and local chef Bob Kinkead will sign his book—the aptly named Kinkead's Cookbook. Other highlights of the open-to-the-public day include "Foodies of the Future" activities for children and a culinary sampling from local artisans and farmers.
