Nominees for the 46th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced this afternoon, and the list is packed with food-show stars—both in and outside of the "Outstanding Culinary Program" and "Outstanding Culinary Host" categories. But, speaking of those two, it's going to be a tight race, with nominees like Barefoot Contessa: Cook Like a Pro, Cook's Country, and Lidia's Kitchen in the first category, and Giada De Laurentiis, Molly Yeh, and Valerie Bertinelli in the second. 

And, as previously reportedlegendary chef, author and TV host Jacques Pepin will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award—making him the first culinary professional to receive that particular honor. See the full list of food show nominees below, and watch the ceremony when it airs on Sunday, May 5.
