The award is given to those "whose lifetime body of work has had a positive and long-lasting impact on the way we eat, cook, and/or think about food in America." 
“Ariane and Michael, who were close friends of James Beard, have made landmark contributions to both the publishing and culinary worlds," says Susan Ungaro, president of the James Beard Foundation. "Everyone in our industry has read and been inspired by their work over the years.  They are true pioneers and we look forward to following their careers for many years to come.”

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
