This week: James Beard Awards weekend in Chicago; recipes; EYBD Previews and more

As you are reading this week’s roundup, Jane, Darcie and I are headed to Chicago for the James Beard Media Awards ceremony on Saturday night at Columbia College Chicago. We are looking forward to some great food, seeing familiar and new faces, and lots of cookbook love. We’ll be tweeting results live and doing our usual awards post. (Update: Friday morning due to illness, I ended up having to make the hard decision to cancel my trip.)

Typically, the media awards are held in New York but this year James Beard is combining the restaurant awards and media awards all in the same weekend in Chicago. Above is a photo of Lyric Opera House where the Restaurant and Chef Awards will be held on June 13th.

We will have a full report for you once we return.

Since our last roundup, Darcie has written these articles:

Darcie’s weekly food news antipasto is shared every Sunday and the tag #foodnews brings up these information-packed posts from the most current to the first one. Darcie can be followed on Instagram at darcie_bakes.

Since our last roundup, I have posted the following:

  • Cookbook deals are frequently updated so check that post often for new sales including our updated Australian section (the ICYMI post explains the post in detail) – please note the addition of LeCreuset specials.
  • Looking forward to 2022 cookbooks (updated with more exciting titles).
