It was a year ago in November that "The Lafayette Food Junkie Show" went on the air; now the show is a finalist for the TASTY Awards, which is a national competition featuring the best of the best and showcases some of the biggest names in Television, Online, in Film and on Radio.

The "Lafayette Food Junkie" herself, Tiffiany Decou, and co-host Chef Zack Doise with Phares' Kitchen began the show as something for the holiday season, as Thanksgiving and Christmas were approaching. But due to its increasing popularity and its commitment to giving Lafayette and the Acadiana area its own show dedicated to the food we all love to enjoy and talk about, the duo's hard work has made the show a success on Sunday nights from 6-7 pm.

The show is nominated in these categories: Best Critic/Review Series & Best Food and Drink Radio Show (Viewer Choice). All Finalist Nominees were voted upon by the members of the Academy of Media Tastemakers. Selected Award Winners will be announced in a private reception in December in San Francisco. All winners will receive their awards on January 15th, 2015 at a Red Carpet Awards celebration in Hollywood.
