Amazon Prime Video‘s Eat the World With Emeril Lagasse was among the non-fiction winners at the 44th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, held Sunday (April 30) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Southern California.

The travelogue – which traces the chef and restaurateur on a food-fueled adventure with the world’s most celebrated chefs, from Cuba to South Korea – was honored by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences with the award for Outstanding Culinary Program.

Amazon’s Eat the World With Emeril Lagasse (pictured) beat out the likes of PBS’ America’s Test Kitchen and The Mind Of A Chef; and Food Network’s Barefoot Contessa, Guy’s Big Bite and Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.

Outstanding Game Show Host honors were bestowed upon Steve Harvey for competition series Family Feud, while the trophy for Outstanding Game Show went to longstanding quiz show Jeopardy.

The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television production and are presented to individuals and programs broadcast from 2 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the 2016 calendar year.

CBS, meanwhile, led the way with seven trophies, followed by ABC’s five wins.
