Cocktail guru David Wondrich will be in attendance, along with Duff Goldman from "Ace of Cakes."  So if you fancy yourself rubbing shoulders with the best of the best in Tennessee, start combing through your recipe collection -- but make sure you have a Twitter account first.

Why? Because the James Beard Foundation panel of judges are searching for the next great recipe. The panel is comprised of "Top Chef Masters" alum Anita Lo, SavoryCities website owners Chris and Jennifer McBride, foodie magazine specialist Mindy Fox, and James Beard VP Mitchell Davis. According to the judging website, each has "a keen eye for detail as well as a highly-developed palate," so choose a recipe that's up to par.

To submit your recipe, edit it to 140 characters or less. That's right -- 140 characters or less. The judges are looking for Twitter abbreviation creativity, not just culinary skills. When done, Tweet it to the James Beard Foundation, and include the hashtag #jbfrecipe.

Your recipe could be one of fifteen semi-finalists posted on the James Beard blog, or one of five finalists chosen for the expert taste-test review.  And the winning recipe's creator will receive two tickets to attend the "Jack Daniel's Birthday Bash" on September 9.

So get creative, get cooking, and good luck!
