James Beard Foundation: Inspiration Through Culinary Heritage

In a trend-driven world, the James Beard Foundation is a constant source of American culinary inspiration. Learn why the Norwegian Seafood Council is partnering with this eternal leader.

In an ever-changing culinary environment, the James Beard Foundation is a constant pillar of American cuisine. Continuing the work of its namesake—cookbook author, teacher and champion of American fare, James Beard—the foundation nurtures generations of chefs, rewards American culinary creativity, and explores how food enriches our lives.

Together, the organizations seek to explore and educate why food matters, both culturally and environmentally.

The Norwegian Seafood Council is proud to support the James Beard Foundation as it honors America’s culinary traditions and top culinary talent.
