The role media - in all its forms - plays in food. That was the topic of discussion in the latest edition of "The Lafayette Food Junkie Show."

“The Lafayette Food Junkie Show,” which has been airing from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Sunday nights here on Newstalk 96.5 KPEL, has given Lafayette and the Acadiana area its own show dedicated to the food we all love to enjoy and talk about since November of 2013!

With their differing perspectives on the food industry, Tiffiany Decou, the "Lafayette Food Junkie," and Chef Zack Doise of Phares' Restaurant made this topic into an interesting discussion. The crew talked about the motives of the person either promoting or discussing food - whether it's someone bashing chefs or someone who's looking to talk about the food community in a positive light.

The crew also talked about whether the idea of a celebrity chef is a good thing or a bad thing, as well as what defines a celebrity chef. They discuss how pivotal the Food Network has been in creating celebrity chefs and in the food industry overall.
