Major League Baseball FanCave Top 30 for 2013

Nominated for the 2013 SoMes by the Baton Rouge Social Media Association for "Best in Baton Rouge," losing out only to Raising Cane's, a corporate giant whose social media is run by people in corporate offices in Dallas, TX.

Runner-up with over 30% of the nearly 4,000 votes for 225 Magazine's 2012 "Best of 225" Awards for Best Blogger/Social Media Personality

"Speaking of local celebrities, I finally got to meet local celebrity chef Jay Ducote which was pretty much awesome. I’ve been following Jay’s blog, Bite and Booze ever since I moved down South and I really admire the guy for livin’ the dream. I mean, it’s his J.O.B. to eat, drink, and then write about it…sounds like a dream, right? Anyway, he was super cool and an all-around nice guy…he even offered to contribute to a little Southern cookbook I’m working on!" - Pixelpunk, Baton Rouge Living, January 2012

"He's arguably the most visible food blogger in south Louisiana, with one of the most popular blogs on the web." - Nils Breckoff, Food Louisiana, January 2012

"Basically, people love this guy." - Rivers Hughey, Finding the Purpose, January 2012

"You gotta love Ducote, whose 2-year-old blog,, has earned him appearances on national TV, write-ups in local publications and his own talk radio show. He’s a big teddy bear of a guy with a boyish exuberance and an entrepreneurial spirit, twin characteristics that enable him to shamelessly self-promote in a way that is endearing and even a bit inspirational, without being offensive." - Stephanie Riegel, The Advocate, December 2011

"Top Forty Under 40" - Baton Rouge Business Report, November 2011

"Jay Ducote is a tastemaker that will guide you on your journey to culinary nirvana." - Anonymous, October 26, 2011

"I continue to be impressed by Ducote and other 20-somethings of his generation who are passionate advocates of local food, local cooking traditions and local restaurants. They are some of our greatest ambassadors, and it speaks volumes about his credibility as a blogger that he has been asked to participate in a panel discussion at the conference." - Stephanie Riegel, The Advocate, August 2011

"Top 100 Amateur Chefs in America" - MasterChef on FOX, Season 2, June 2011

"If there is a king of the local food-blogging community, it is Ducote, who in just 18 months has established as one of the leaders of the local social media movement, and one of the bigger names in the national food blogging community." - Stephanie Riegel, The Advocate, May 2011

"Without Facebook, Jay Ducote would not exist. Sure the former math teacher, the son, the brother, the chill guy you want to have a beer with would remain; but take away his active presence on the Internet’s most trafficked site, and the Jay Ducote that produces the suddenly social food blog Bite and Booze, the Jay Ducote who stars in popular tailgating videos for LSU, and the Jay Ducote with thousands of fans across the country who have come to know him so well so fast in the course of a year seems a lot less likely." - Jeff Roedel, 225 Magazine, February 2011

Winner - 2010 Tony Chachere's Tailgating Cookoff
