The 2nd Annual Tasty Awards


Celebrating the best in food and fashion, one presenter aptly described it as an event for "...Those who love to eat, and those who don't eat at all."

The second annual Tasty Awards kicked off this week at Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre, and as luminaries from both the foodie and fashion world milled about in the courtyard, they marveled at the unseasonably warm weather. That, and gorgeous servers in space suits, serving hors d'oeuvres by The Supper Club.

The awards show had a few hilarious trip-ups (as awards shows do), though it would have been funnier had there been an open bar prior to the show. Three Sheets' Zane Lamprey (pictured left) made light of it all and kept the crowd happy.

Some of the night's winners included Top Chef for Best Food Program. The award was accepted by Top Chef star Fabio Viviani, whom I'd previously had the pleasure of meeting during a Top Chef culinary tour

The winner for Best Fashion or Design Program went to Lifetime's Project Runway and Best New Series was The Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race. The after party was hopping, as signature cocktails were shaken by Vya, and spicy Malaysian delicacies were served by downtown's Starry Kitchen. Chocolate of all creeds were laid out for the taking, such as The Toffee Box, Wine Time Bars and Mignon. Both stylish and delicious, I would expect no less a presentation from The Tasty Awards.
