The James Beard Foundation
Mr. Jack, the father of America's finest spirit, truly did pledge his life to the art of living well. In fact, he was a legendary host in his day and well known in Middle Tennessee for his extravagant parties.
Another American gentleman named James Beard (1903-1985) also dedicated his home, his kitchen and his life to the pursuit of good eating and drinking. In fact, many refer to him as the father of American gastronomy. When Jim passed away, folks like Julia Child thought it would be important to establish a foundation in his name to foster the culinary arts in America.
Since Jack and Jim lived their lives with the same goal in mind, the Jack Daniel Distillery has been there since the Foundation's beginning to help with the cause. In reverence to both fine gentlemen, The Jack Daniel Distillery is a proud benefactor of the James Beard Foundation.
Today, the James Beard Foundation flourishes as an American culinary monument, the first of its kind in North America. Jim's brownstone serves as the stage for chefs across the country to share their talents and further the American culinary arts. Members and guests purchase tickets to the dinners where they dine on the creations of chefs from Santa Fe to Birmingham to Boston.
