Friday night a slew of well-fed food fans were drawn to the late-night party emceed by Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host Guy Fieri at the New York City Wine & Food Festival. The first iteration of the late-night trivia event, pitting star against star, appeared at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in February. Guy was proud to announce that this was Round 2, only bigger, better and with more booze. Guy’s ever-present energy ricocheted off the walls as he riled up the crowd for the panel of Food Network stars, distributing drinks personally before introducing the two teams. Carla Hall, Josh Capon and Valerie Bertinelli faced off against Chopped judges Alex Guarnaschelli, Marc Murphy and Scott Conant. Food Fight with Guy Fieri was a rare chance for the attendees to see the Food Network stars unedited and unfiltered.

Guy Fieri’s taking us on a trip to Flavortown, and this time it’s not on the road with Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Instead, the feast of flavor is happening right at home. He’s known for bringing over-the-top bold flavors to any dish he makes, and the everyday chicken dinner is no exception. Follow his lead and amp up the flavor at your next get-together with one of his fan-favorite chicken recipes.

It takes just three ingredients — rice wine vinegar, sugar and soy sauce — to pickle the chiles and dates that give these wings bold layers of flavor.
“We’re rolling out!”
To the Emmy Awards, that is.
The 2016 Primetime Emmy Award nominations were announced on Thursday, and for the fourth year in a row, Guy Fieri‘s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives has earned a sought-after nomination in the Outstanding Structured Reality Program category. It’s no secret that you, Food Network fans, crave Guy’s coast-to-coast exploration of all manner of homemade meaty, cheesy and downright indulgent fare, and it appears the Television Academy is just as pleased with Guy’s adventures.
Father and son Guy and Hunter Fieri are embarking on the ultimate food-filled adventure, trekking through Europe on the hunt for unique culinary experiences on Guy & Hunter’s European Vacation, premiering Friday, Feb. 5 at 10|9c.
Food Network fans have seen Hunter grow up before their eyes on Triple D, Triple G and Guy’s Big Bite. Now as Hunter graduates high school, his dad is surprising him with one of the best gifts, an experience of a lifetime: a trip to visit 13 different cities across Europe. The adventure is sure to open up a whole new world of cuisine for Hunter, who’ll be taking up hospitality studies as he starts college at UNLV.
Host Guy Fieri is welcoming back past Triple G champions in Guy’s Grocery Games Tournament of Champions, premiering Sunday, Nov. 29 at 8|7c. Sixteen of the most-unforgettable previous winners return to battle it out in the five-part series. They will face challenges that test their culinary prowess and innovation for a chance to earn a spot in the grand finale. The single winner will claim bragging rights as the ultimate Triple G champion, and he or she will get an extra run at the Shopping Spree for a chance to become the biggest prizewinner in the show’s history.
Follow Guy Fieri into one of the hundreds of restaurants he features on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and you’ll find him taking a massive bite of all-American eats — think burgers, hot dogs and pancakes. As a winner of one of the earliest seasons of Food Network Star, Guy wows fans with his rockin’ dishes on Guy’s Big Bite and the outrageous challenges he gives contestants on Triple G. We’ve rounded up some of Guy’s biggest and boldest dishes, from his bacon-studded macaroni and cheese to Italian-style nachos.
Guy Fieri has done it again. For the third year in a row, the past Food Network Star winner’s fan-favorite series, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, has scored a nomination for a Primetime Emmy Award. From North Pole, Alaska, to the island of Key West, Fla., Guy and the Triple D team have traveled from coast to coast and beyond in search of the best, most-over-the-top versions of classic eats and drinks and the local legends who create them at popular joints and little-known hot spots alike. The series, now in its 23rd season, is nominated in the Structured Reality Program Category.
Joining Triple D in the Structured Reality Program category are Antiques Roadshow, MythBusters, Shark Tank and Undercover Boss, as well as HGTV’s Property Brothers, hosted by siblings and home-renovation experts Drew Scott and Jonathan Scott. Fresh off of its seventh season, Property Brothers is known for transforming fixer-upper houses into dream homes — all while staying within a family’s budget and set timeline.
On Guy’s Grocery Games, “Five Ingredients or Less” is inarguably the most well-known, difficult and popular game. And why is that? Because “everybody plays the game at home and goes, ‘Here’s my five,'” says the show’s host, Guy Fieri. It’s hard to resist even if it’s just left up to the imagination. “It’s awesome to see what the chefs come up with here [on the show],” continues Guy, especially when there are those who make it even more challenging for themselves by creating a dish with just four ingredients! That’s what makes the game so fun — it can go any which way.
We asked Guy to play along and come up with his favorite five-ingredient dish, but he doesn’t stop at just one combination. He says, “It depends on what day it is, what time it is, what you just had for lunch, what you’re going to have for dinner, what you are emotionally, how you’re feeling physically, what temperature is it outside.” But Guy’s first combination surprised us.
Leave it to Guy Fieri to turn a simple live cooking demo into an all-out party, complete with pumping music, plenty of The Drunk Donkey cocktails and, of course, over-the-top eats. That’s just what happened at the 2015 South Beach Wine & Food Festival when Guy dished out the cheesiest, meatiest nachos ever … in a trashcan. This nontraditional (and clean) vessel was the only container large enough to hold his super-layered snack — so large, in fact, that when it came time to serve the nachos, Guy needed a few friends’ help to flip the can over.

On day three of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, after back-to-back nights of indulgent alfresco feasting and over-the-top burgering, hungry fans wanted more, and for that, they turned to Guy Fieri. The host of Triple D and Guy’s Grocery Games isn’t known for doing anything on a small scale, and last night’s Meatopia: The Q Revolution was no exception, as he hosted this 30-plus-chef extravaganza that for the first time combined The Q, a longtime festival favorite, with Meatopia, a festival all its own, to create an all-new party at South Beach. From sticky ribs and tender pulled pork to hearty rib-eye steaks, moist brisket, and even veal, lamb and chicken hearts, the competing chefs at this all-out meat brawl brought their best bites in the hopes of taking home the Judges’ Choice trophy or the Fan-Favorite Winner guitar.
As Blues Traveler was jamming on stage, the crowds lined up on the beach at each station to sample the dozens of beefy dishes on display last night, and after a few hours of indulging — and, perhaps, the expected meat sweats — Guy proclaimed The Cecil the judges’ pick of the night. Chef JJ Johnson’s BBQ oxtails, bathed in a spicy tamarind sauce, earned him a whopping $1,000 check and a flame-wrapped trophy.
