Time magazine calls The James Beard Foundation Awards the food equivalent of the Oscars. Earlier this week in a ceremony held at The Lincoln Center, the 2009 JBF awarded prizes in 38 categories. Some highlights… Jean Georges was awarded Outstanding Restaurant;check out my Blog on the owner and executive chef Jean Georges Vongerichten on my Island Living Designs Blog.

Cookbook of the year went to Fat: An Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient, with Recipes.

by Jennifer McLagan, which also won Best Single Subject Cook Book.

After years of trying to eat low fat, I guess the cooking world is ready to acknowledge that some things just taste better with a little…fat!
