Everyone knows that the real point of the James Beard Awards is to eat and drink a ton of free food and booze during the gala tasting.

This year's awards theme was "The Melting Pot," which supposedly translated to internationally focused food at the tasting. Did that notion come through? Take a peek at some of the dishes served and see for yourself.
