We are thrilled to announce the third annual Friends of James Beard Benefit Dinner on Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. This year’s fundraiser, Beard on the Beach, will feature five prominent area chefs from the picturesque beaches of Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. Taking advantage of the final harvest of the season, the five-course benefit dinner proceeds contribute to regional scholarships for culinary education and the James Beard Foundation’s scholarship program.




The exclusive team assembled by our very own Culinary Director of Remington Hotels, Luxury Division, Ted Peters includes Executive Chef of TPC Sawgrass Hector Gonzalez, Executive Chef of The Cloister at Sea Island Jonathan Jerusalmy, Executive Chef of The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island Thomas Tolxdorf and Pastry Chef of One Ocean Resort & Spa Courtney Slipko. All wine pairings for the courses are from the exquisite Foley Family Wineries. 




We are very excited for another fantastic year. Beard on the Beach would not be possible without the generous support of Jacksonville Magazine, Sherri Ebert Photography, Bruce Hamilton and Nikki Kimbleton of WJXT, Sight & Sound Productions, Triad Design Group, Oneida and Jacksonville Specialty Advertising. Proceeds from the dinner will be divided equally between regional culinary scholarships in the name of Azurea restaurant, the James Beard Foundation’s scholarship program and general operating fund {which enables the foundation to maintain the historic James Beard House in New York City as a performance space for chefs and to administer educational programs}.


The benefit dinner will present an intimate seated wine dinner for $135 per person for non-James Beard Foundation members and $110 per person for James Beard members. To join us at the Friends of James Beard Benefit Dinner at One Ocean Resort & Spa, visit or purchase tickets at
