Exciting news: Feast TV won three Mid-America Emmy Awards this weekend!
Two Feast TV episodes tied each other for a win in the Lifestyle Program category: The Coffee & Donuts episode, which features Vincent Van Doughnut, Fretboard Coffee and Thou Mayest Coffee Roasters, and the Wood-Fired episode, which features Flyover, Balkan Treat Box and Woodyard BBQ.
The For the Win episode, which features a rare look into the prestigious Bocuse d'Or Ment'or competition in Las Vegas with Elaia and Olio's Ben Grupe and Jared Dix, won in the Specialty Assignment category.
"What an incredible honor to win three Mid-America Emmys in one night!" says Feast publisher Cat Neville. "I still can't believe that we tied ourselves in the Lifestyle Program category with the Wood-Fired and Coffee & Donuts episodes. In the Specialty Assignment category, we won with our For the Win episode that followed Elaia chef Ben Grupe in his quest to represent the U.S. at the Bocuse d'Or.
"We captured his training sessions and followed him to Las Vegas, where his team was one of just three competing for the honor. It was a unique opportunity to take viewers behind the scenes at an international-level culinary competition, and I want to thank Ben and his commis, Jared Dix, for letting us tag along and tell just a bit of their story."
