Now in its fourth season, Guy’s Grocery Games has turned grocery shopping into a game, taking something that might be seen as a necessary chore and turning it into welcomed fun. And in the new season, premiering Sunday, Jan. 4 at 8|7c, families are entering for the chance to win the $20,000 shopping spree.
Guy’s Grocery Games: Family Style will feature four three-person family teams in each of its four episodes, airing Jan. 4, 11, 18 and 25. These families take team playing to the next level, showing positive collaboration from shopping to cooking. FN Dish recently caught up with host Guy Fieri to chat about the new season and the unique family competition. He reveals what viewers can expect to see, including some emotionally moving moments.
The Ice Bucket Challenge has taken the Internet by storm, getting support from countless Facebook users and celebrities alike. Our own Food Network personalities and chefs have pitched in as well, pouring freezing-cold water — and some other interesting additions — on themselves in the name of charity. Check out which stars have participated so far.
Guy’s Grocery Games: the only show where chefs have the supermarket to themselves, have to cook in it and have the chance to win some serious dough. “During the first season of the show, when chefs walked in the door, you’d hear, ‘Well, now what do we do?'” Guy shared. “But since most have seen the show, they understand how it progresses,” he continued. But even though they think they know the game now, many still make the same mistakes. And the competition is only getting fiercer.
With that said, FN Dish asked Guy to share eight ways (from his point of view) to survive Guy’s Grocery Games:
1. Don’t over-portion.
2. Don’t add a frivolous garnish.

This August, the competition heats up as Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off returns to Food Network. This season promises to be even more explosive than the last, with all-new challenges to really test the ‘kid’-testants’ culinary prowess in the kitchen.
Eight multi-talented young chefs will be divided into two teams — one coached by Rachael and one by Guy — and the kid chefs will have to go through a mini challenge and a main challenge each episode, winning stars based on their recipes and cooking talent. With amazing guest judges, including Alex Guarnaschelli, Jeff Mauro and Robert Irvine, this season is a perfect combination of food and fun.
On an all-new episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Guy is heading to the West Coast for a taste of California. In Culver City, Guy will get the ultimate surprise when Gene Simmons from KISS makes a special appearance. He’ll then continue his trip by visiting Garden Grove, where he’ll discover a family-run Mexican joint serving tamales and traditional beef Chamorro. Guy will also visit the coast of Monterey for a seafood feast fit for a king. Catch this episode on Friday, July 11 at 10|9c. Until then, check out these exclusive behind-the-scenes photos of Guy’s California adventure.
A new season of Guy’s Grocery Games premieres Sunday, May 11 at 8|7c, and to get fans excited, Guy’s showing everyone the new digs. That’s right: This season, Flavortown Market moves to Guy’s hometown, Santa Rosa, Calif.
“First and foremost, this set — Flavortown Market — will knock your socks off. It has the most-eclectic and most-international profile of ingredients available,” Guy tells FN Dish. “When you use the term ‘super’ in ‘supermarket,’ that’s what this set is — it’s truly defining in all shapes and sizes. The aisles are wider, the lighting is better, so it makes it easier for the chefs to shop and see what’s on the shelves. Going along with the shelves, the culinary team has stocked and set them up so they’re far more shopper friendly. There are a lot of great markets around the country, but I wish Flavortown Market really existed.”

Stuffed with original recipes and dozens of family photos, Guy on Fire has something for everyone: palate-pleasing appetizers, cool salads, main courses for meat, fish and poultry, and desserts. Are you a novice at the grill? He also provides tips on equipment, make-ahead plans and packing advice.

Guy’s bringing Flavortown Market back in an all-new season of Guy’s Grocery Games, premiering May 11 at 8|7c. Fans of the show will be excited to see returning judges Melissa d’Arabian, Richard Blais, Troy Johnson and Catherine McCord — as well as some new faces. But that’s not all. Guy’s challenging a brand-new roster of chefs on an all-new set. That’s right — this season, Flavortown Market moves to Guy’s hometown, Santa Rosa, Calif. FN Dish recently caught up with Guy on set and asked him what viewers can expect to see this season.
“First and foremost, this set — Flavortown Market — will knock your socks off. It has the most-eclectic and most-international profile of ingredients available,” Guy shares. “When you use the term ‘super’ in supermarket, that’s what this set is — it’s truly defining in all shapes and sizes.

So what can fans expect in Season 2? “I think the biggest difference is that competitors have seen the show, so they have insight into the mechanics of it. When chefs walked in the door the first season, you’d hear, ‘Well, now what do we do?’ But since most have seen the show, they understand how it progresses,” Guy explains. “I also think a bigger profile of chefs has been made available — so the competition is even more fierce.”
