James Beard Foundation Woes


Published May 2, 2007 at 4:51 p.m.

There was an interesting article in today's NY Times about how the James Beard Foundation is struggling to bounce back from a 2004 scandal.

The article comes out just ahead of the James Beard Award ceremonies, which take place next Monday. A bunch of Vermonters will be there to see if they're the big winners.

As winning a Beard -- or at least getting a nomination -- is one of my dreams, and I appreciate the foundation's goals -- albeit not always their execution -- I hope that they can pull themselves out of the red.
