Chef Adam Cooke invited to James Beard House

To be invited even once to the prestigious James Beard House in New York City is a lifetime achievement for any chef. For Adam Cooke, his November visit will be his second trip to the Beard House, a testament to his skill, and acknowledgment of the respect he has garnered in culinary circles, even at the relatively young age (for chefs) of 34. “It’s quite an honor,” says Adam. “I am both humbled by the recognition, and really excited to go back to such a respected kitchen in Greenwich Village and be a part of the foundation’s efforts to support the culinary arts.”

A Mecca for all things culinary
The James Beard Foundation is a New York-based national non-profit organization whose mission is to “celebrate, nurture, and honor America’s diverse culinary heritage through programs that educate and inspire.” The Foundation hosts numerous cooking events throughout the year, inviting a select number of chefs, wine professionals, journalists, and cookbook authors to share their passion and talent. “Beyond the honor of being invited,” says Adam, “it’s really a lot of fun to be in that environment, and to be doing something I love with others who care so much about not only preserving the heritage, but helping ensure its mission for future generations of chefs.”

Chef Adam to treat Restaurant 17 guests to a taste of the Beard House
