Jay Ducote is one of five remaining contestants left on Food Network Star. On Sunday’s episode, the Baton Rougean was in the zone. His odds of winning his own show on the network increased significantly with this week’s victories.
The episode seemed catered to Ducote’s style of cooking. The first challenge featured contestants cooking and presenting their favorite brunch dishes as portable meals.
Ducote’s andouille hash and egg tacos won the challenge. Check out the recipe. Judges Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis agreed the Capital City native was comfortable. It didn’t hurt that his dish was tasty, too.
