For those who love tacos, tequila and mingling with the most famous chefs of the food world, then The Art of the Taco party was the place to be on Saturday night. The event, part of the New York City Wine and Food Festival, was hosted by Bobby Flay, who is famous for the catchphrase, “Tacos, Yo.” Flay manned his Mesa Grill taco station, serving guests mini smoked salmon tacos. But Bobby wasn’t the only star around, all the chefs were out that night — Alex Guarnaschelli, Andrew Zimmern, Geoffrey Zakarian, Scott Conant, Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos, Marc Forgione, Jeff Mauro, Sunny Anderson, Aaron Sanchez and Anne Burrell were at the party too, and I even heard there was a Guy Fieri sighting.

Guy Fieri and his dad prefer to spend Father’s Day grilling out in Guy’s Santa Rosa, CA backyard over a restaurant dinner to celebrate their special day. For the Fieri’s, cooking is a multi-generational family affair — Guy’s kids get involved, cooking alongside their dad and grandfather. They plan the menu well in advance, choosing recipes that everyone loves and that everyone can help cook, too. For inspiration, they look no further than Guy’s new cookbook, Guy Fieri Food — now a New York Times bestseller — for recipes spanning Guy’s whole career.

To celebrate dads everywhere (and Guy’s book making the bestsellers’ list) we’re giving away 3 copies of Guy Fieri Food! All you have to do is let us know, here in the comments, how you’re celebrating Father’s Day this year. Do you and dad cook together, or does he prefer a restaurant meal? Do you whip up a special dessert just for him, or grill him a juicy steak? We’re giving away one copy of the cookbook to three randomly-selected, and very lucky commenter’s.
