Tonight at 6pm EDT, 11:00 PM BST in England and 12:00 PM in mainland Europe the James Beard Foundation Awards will be streamed live throughout the web.
We'll be embedding the live stream direct from New York's Avery Fisher Hall as the world tunes in to the 25th Annual JBF Awards, finding out which chefs, restaurants, designers and restaurant owners will pick up awards in what is deemed by many to be 'the oscars of food'.
You'll be able to watch all the action on this page with the FDL team tweeting alongside the announcements. To know more about the chef behind the awards you can read a personal account of James Beard written by New York Restaurant critic and colleague Gael Greene.
We'll see you tonight for all announcements, reactions and all the tasty gossip from the James Beard Foundation Awards 2012....A full list of the JBF 2012 finalists can be found here.
