I love Food Network and while I cannot always mimic what I see I do love to watch my favorite chefs whip up a storm in the kitchen and there is one chef in particular that I love to watch…Guy Fieri! Whether it’s Guy’s Big Bite or Triple D (Diners, Drive-In’s, and Dives) I always love watching Guy cook, eat, and talk about food, honestly though how could you not when his enthusiasm and obvious affinity for all things food make watching so fun?
Recently I received a copy of Guy’s first cookbook: Guy Fieri Food: Cookin' It, Livin' It, Lovin' It and I haven’t been able to put it down! While there are so many recipes that look killer (something I can picture Guy sayin’ about them) I also love that with each recipe there’s a story of how the recipe came about and why it rocks! Original illustrations by Guy’s tattoo artist, nationally renown Joe Leonard give Guy Fieri Food even more character and charm!
About Guy Fieri Food:
Demonstrating his culinary chops, Guy offers step-by-step instructions, or “Guy’ds” that provide fundamental skills to the home cook from rolling egg rolls and making pizza, to properly parting a chicken. Guy also entertains with stories about his culinary inspiration and reveals his kitchen essentials like pantry items, tools and equipment. Going beyond typical cookbook fare, Guy dishes about his upbringing, behind the scenes stories from years of shooting for Food Network, and his personal mission to get kids in the kitchen.
On May 17th, Guy will bring the book to life on stage with his 16-city cross country Guy Fieri Food Tour sponsored by the National Pork Board. The interactive show will mix the best elements of a live cooking event, the fun of a variety revue (including a Minute to Win It Challenge featuring members of the audience), and the non-stop adrenaline rush of a rock concert! You can check out all of the details (and see if Guy will be coming to a city near you) on Guy’s website!
I have to admit I cannot look at Guy Fieri Food without wanting to make every single recipe that I come across! A few of my favorites (that I cannot wait to try) are the Chicken Avocado Egg Rolls, Hong Kong Noodles, and Gaucho Steak with 4-Herb Chimichurri can you so DELISH!
You can pick up a copy of Guy Fieri Food: Cookin' It, Livin' It, Lovin' It on Amazon!
