Chinese-Jewish chef’s show nominated for Emmy E-mail

Chinese-Jewish chef Molly Yeh has been nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for best culinary host for her show Girl Meets Farm. The show, which is aired on the US Food Network Channel, premiered on the Food Network last summer and is now in its third season.

In an Instagram post, Yeh wrote that she was “completely verklempt” to be nominated.

Yeh, 30, became popular through her casual, aesthetically pleasing blog, “my name is yeh”. She occasionally melds her two heritages together in recipes, and now uses ingredients from the North Dakota farm she moved to with her husband, Nick Hagen.

“Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago and living in New York, it didn’t even strike me as a possibility that a place could really exist without tons of Jews,” Yeh told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, about her culture shock moving to the Midwest. “If I wasn’t going to be maintaining my Jewish identity and celebrating Jewish holidays and cooking Jewish food on the farm, nobody was going to be.”
