James Beard Documentary

julia child quote

There is a documentary about James Beard coming out next year, well at least we hope so. Director Beth Federici is trying and according to the films website it is in production and is set to be released in May of 2015.

James Beard was born in Portland Oregon and was what the movie is calling it “Americas first foodie” and I think you will have to agree, especially since in those days the food world looked nothing like it does today.

James Beard was probably one of the key persons that helped shape the future of the American chef, and with a foundation in his name, a bunch of cookbooks and a huge impact on the food world as we now know it I am hoping this documentary turns out great.

If you want to read up on James Beard Wikipedia have some good stuff, for info on the James Beard Foundation head to their website.
