Alex Guarnaschelli’s Fix Me a Plate Wins Cynopsis Best Culinary Series Award

She’s ICAG and she’s unstoppable.

Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, the inimitable Chopped judge and Kitchen Stadium superstar, has yet another accolade to add to her impressive resume. Just this week, her digital series, Fix Me a Plate, which lives right here on and on Food Network’s Facebook page, took home top honors at Cynopsis’ Short Form Video Festival in the Culinary Series category. Fix Me a Plate was joined in this group by another Food Network digital series, Comfort Nation, plus Bug Bites, Cooking on High and Man About Cake.

As a native New Yorker, Alex knows the best-of-the-best spots to eat and hang out in the Big Apple, and on Fix Me a Plate, she explores some of her faves to meet the people who make them special and bring you up close to all the can’t-miss dishes. Now in its second season, Fix Me a Plate has showcased the pillowy square pie made famous at L & B Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn, old-school doughnuts at Manhattan’s The Donut Pub and craveworthy fish tacos at Queens’ Rockaway Taco Surf Club, among other destination dishes that’ll leave you drooling.

And just last night, Fix Me a Plate was recognized at the Digiday Video Awards in the Best Facebook Watch Show category, along with fellow nominees The Scarlet Letter Reports, Militarykind Stories, Off Script, Billy on the Street and Travel Dares.
