James Beard always welcomed students, authors, chefs, and other guests into his home—his kitchen was truly at the heart of America’s burgeoning food scene. After his death in 1985, a group of his friends and colleagues heeded a call from Julia Child to do something with Beard’s house.

The James Beard Foundation officially opened the James Beard House in New York City’s Greenwich Village on November 5, 1986 “to provide a center for the culinary arts and to continue to foster the interest James Beard inspired in all aspects of food, its preparation presentation, and of course, enjoyment.”

For decades, cooking at the James Beard House has been an aspiration for many chefs and considered a career milestone. In May of 2021, they launched the Beard House Fellows program, which re-envisions the potential of the historic space into a hub of training and professional development for talented emerging chefs.
