The Wicklow-based presenter and writer was shortlisted in the Outstanding Culinary Host category for her show A Taste of Ireland: Ballyknocken Cookery School on Food TV, but lost out to Valerie Bertinelli for Valerie's Home Cooking on the Food Network. Bertinelli's show also won the Outstanding Culinary Program award.
