Earlier this week, FN Dish caught up with Guy Fieri for a Facebook chat about the new season of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off. Guy answered questions about the competition, the celebrities, working with Rachael, what it’s like to be a part of the show and more.
Jennifer Suraci Tavella: Whose cooking skills surprised you?
Guy Fieri: I have to tell you that Johnny Weir’s cooking skills — from the way he said he could cook to the way he actually cooked — really surprised me. The guy has a great palate.
Janice Miller: How do you deal with a celebrity that can’t cook at all?
GF: Everybody loves food. Food is the common denominator of all people. To say someone can’t cook at all — I don’t know if that’s really true. They just may not have that much experience or practice. If you give them some techniques, it’s amazing what people can do. They just have to believe in themselves and try.
