Guy’s Grocery Games Takes the Competition to the Supermarket

by in Food Network Chef, Shows, September 12th, 2013

Going to the supermarket can often feel like a competition, especially when you’re racing to get in and out in record time, or trying to get the best bang for your buck with specials, sales and coupons. And when you’re looking for all the ingredients for a recipe, just finding everything can be an exercise in frustration while getting to know the store’s stocking system. Wouldn’t it be great if you could actually get rewarded for all the troubles of grocery shopping? Well, now Food Network is turning the supermarket into a battleground with the new show, Guy’s Grocery Games (premiering Oct. 20 at 8pm/7c), hosted by the one-and-only Guy Fieri.

“I think that Triple G is a first of its kind,” Guy recently told FN Dish. “There are two common concepts here: cooking and shopping. But we’ve never really highlighted the shopping before. We’ve seen shopping competition shows before, but now we’re taking the shopping component and the chef’s creativity and mixing in time, money and challenges. Bundle it altogether and you’ve got a super high powered, family-friendly show on Food Network. That’s what this show is going to be.”

by in Food Network Chef, Shows, September 11th, 2013

Guy Fieri on Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-OffRachael Ray and Guy Fieri are back together again to battle it out, but this time it’s not with celebrities — it’s with kids. Last Sunday, for the first time, they started mentoring eight of the most talented kid chefs in the new series Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off (Sundays at 8pm/7c).

“No one gets eliminated in this series. This competition is about educating, mentoring, encouraging and empowering the kids,” Guy recently said in an interview. “You’ll sit there, watch them and just be amazed. Whether you have kids or not, you’ll watch this show and ask yourself, ‘Why wasn’t this done 10 years ago?’ That’s the kind of show it is. That’s the kind of energy it brings.”
