Frequent WBRZ guest, local chef Holly Clegg to receive lifetime achievement award
BATON ROUGE - Best-selling author, chef and frequent guest on WBRZ’s 2une In Holly Clegg has received the nod for this year’s Grace “Mama” Marino Lifetime Achievement Award from the Baton Rouge Epicurean Society.
The award is being given to Clegg based on her consistent efforts to positively impact the health and well-being of the community as she engages topics such as living with diabetes and recovering from cancer in her cookbooks and television appearances. When she isn’t promoting healthful cooking, she is working with local organizations like Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center to push for the pursuit of healthier Baton Rouge residents. Clegg was selected for the accolade on Wednesday morning.
Proudly bearing the nickname “Queen of Quick,” Holly Clegg has sold over one million cookbooks over the course of her career and is frequently referenced as a one of the most influential healthy cooking experts in the country.
She’ll receive her lifetime achievement award at a banquet scheduled to be held in conjunction with Féte Rouge (Aug. 25-26). The banquet is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 25 at L'Auberge Casino & Hotel. Tickets to the banquet can be had for $200 each with tables of eight available. Full event details and tickets can be found at www.feterougebr.com/#!awarddinner/.
