Submitted by Amanda Zerebko

FOLEY — A Foley woman was recently featured on Destination America’s “Deep Fried Masters.” It’s a competition show that features deep-frying enthusiasts from across the country competing for the Golden Corndog Trophy.

Amanda Zerebko owns a food truck called “Fried Food Fantasy.” She sent in an audition tape to be on the show and says she was surprised when she got a call back.

Six people competed in a three-round format including the Signature Dish round, Fried Food On a Stick round and the Judge’s Choice round. Zerebko says there’s a lot more that goes on behind-the-scenes on a television set than she realized.
