The James Beard Foundation (JBF) was recognized by the Destination & Travel Foundation with the 2014 Spirit of Hospitality Award at a gala dinner held at the Convention Center on Feb. 11. JBF President Susan Ungaro accepted the award presented annually to individuals and organizations that show exceptional commitment to the travel and tourism industry. Former Chief of Protocol Capricia Marshall called the JBF “an invaluable partner to the U.S. Department of State/Office of Protocol as it launched its global Diplomatic Culinary Partnership in 2012” recognizing the power of dining and culinary arts as an important tool of diplomacy.
