The James Beard Foundation has announced the nominees and special honorees for the 2006 James Beard Foundation Awards. This year there are a total of 62 Award categories for restaurants and chefs, cookbooks, broadcasting, print journalism, and restaurant design.

Established in 1990, the James Beard Foundation Awards recognize cookbook authors, restaurants, chefs, food and beverage journalists, broadcasters, and restaurant and graphic designers. To select the nominees and winners, independent volunteer panels of more than 600 food and beverage professionals from around the country vote on specific Award categories. The accounting firm Lutz & Carr tabulates ballots. Winners' identities remain confidential until the Awards ceremonies. Winners receive a bronze medallion engraved with the image of James Beard. Membership in, service to, and fundraising for the James Beard Foundation are neither requirements for nor in any way relevant to Awards consideration or nomination. The trustees and staff of the James Beard Foundation do not vote.
