Vegan chef and YouTuber 'The Edgy Veg' has received the award for 'Best Home Chef in a Series' at the ninth Annual Taste Awards in Los Angeles.
The awards celebrate the year's best in food, fashion, and lifestyle programs on television, in film, online, and in apps, radio and podcasts. This year's winners include Mario Batali, Rachel Ray, Jillian Michaels, Man v. Food, Simply Ming and Martha and Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party amongst others.

The Edgy Veg creates recipes she hopes will appeal to meat eaters, veggies, and vegans alike
The Edgy Veg Chef-Creator, Candice Hutchings, said: "We are honored and humbled to be recognized by the Taste Awards and are so happy that vegan food is becoming more and more mainstream.
"It gives us even more motivation to create tasty new vegan recipes for the world to fall in love with.
"Our goal is to make easy vegan recipes that carnivores, vegetarians, reducetarians and vegans alike can enjoy, and that remind them of the food they grew up loving."
