Jesse Tyler Ferguson Hosts James Beard Awards
While artists, designers and celebrities focused on the biggest fashion night Met Gala on Monday, the culinary world had something else going on. The Oscars of the food world – James Beard Awards in Chicago on Monday night held the gaze of food critics. The weekend of party hopping and mingling by the best chefs of the culinary world was made more spectacular with Emmy-nominated actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson as the host. Doesn’t seem surprising at all, right? After all, as a food lover and an author of a food blog himself, the Modern Family actor seems like a natural fit for the post.

However, Jesse Tyler Ferguson hosting a culinary event comes off as no surprise. Especially, since the Modern Family actor has done it once previously in 2017 as well. Over the years, Ferguson has made his interest in the culinary world extremely evident to the world. In fact, his social media bears witness to his active presence in his kitchen.
What could be a better way to honor these food artists by hosting the biggest food night for them? Ferguson himself worded his emotions claiming,
I love honoring the up-and-comers and the new people. I think it’s really important to praise the people who are reinventing, and are the fresh blood in the industry.
Apart from a great experience, the James Beard Awards served as a great inspiration to host Jesse Tyler Ferguson. The award-winning chefs allow him to raise the stakes on the game in his own kitchen!
The four-hour long spectacle celebrated a trail of winners from southern to northern California. This year, the James Beard Awards had a theme of ‘Good Food for Good’. Once the event hit it off, former award winners and top chefs from the country served the attendees and VIP guests to a multi-course dinner on the mezzanine prepared by chefs from Union Square Hospitality Group.
