The Daytime Emmy Award nominees were announced yesterday, with four shows in the "Outstanding Culinary Programming" category: America's Test Kitchen
and Gourmet's Adventures with Ruth
, both PBS series, followed by two Food Network mainstays: Giada De Laurentiis's Giada at Home
and Tyler Florence's Tyler's Ultimate
In 2009, Giada at Home
won an Emmy for Outstanding Directing in a Lifestyle/Culinary Program.
Of the programs nominated, Gourmet's Adventures of Ruth
is the new kid on the block, debuting in October 2009. It's also a coup for Gourmet
magazine, as the show is one of the last extensions of the brand. The show follows Ruth Reichl's culinary exploits around the world, exploring traditional cuisine with famous actors. Not a bad way to make a living. Besides being Gourmet
's former Editor-in-Chief, Reichl has also worked recently as a producer on Gourmet
's Diary of a Foodie.
In the "Outstanding Lifestyle/Culinary Host" category, the usual suspects are up for Emmy's: Bobby Flay for Grill It! With Bobby Flay
, Ina Garten from Barefoot Contessa: Back to Basics
, Paula Deen for Paula's Best Dishes
, Giada De Laurentiis for Giada at Home
and Martha Stewart for The Martha Stewart Show
The Daytime Emmy Awards are scheduled to broadcast live on June 27 via CBS.
