The James Beard Foundation honored chef Emeril Lagasse with the Humanitarian of the Year award for his foundation's dedication to children's culinary arts programs.
“Over ten years ago, I founded the Emeril Lagasse Foundation with the hope of giving back by exposing young people to the culinary arts —- especially those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds," Lagasse says. "Over the years we've stayed true to our core values of education, mentorship, passion, creativity, self-discipline."
