The James Beard Foundation Awards returned to the Lyric Opera of Chicago on May 2. This year's event, which honored chefs in several categories, had a “TV Dinner” theme. The theme carried over to dishes that chefs prepared for the reception, where guests had bites inspired by classic TV characters such as Montgomery Burns from The Simpsons and the Jolly Green Giant.
