Oh, the excitement of the James Beard Foundation Awards is starting to simmer. Today, JBF announced its first of many medals, this first for Wolfgang Puck, the multiple James Beard Award-winning chef and restaurateur. He will receive the 2012 James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award. 

This also just in — the foundation will announce the final nominees for all award categories at the Venetian and Palazzo right here in our fair city on March 19. Or you can be lazy, stay in bed and watch the nominations roll through on JBF’s Twitter feed

Puck has multiple Vegas restaurants such as his original, Spago, at the Forum Shops at Caesars, CUT at the Palazzo, Postrio at the Venetian and Trattoria del Lupo at Mandalay Bay and more.

The awards will be announced May 7 at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall in New York City.
