He's our Guy

Congratulations to my homeboy Guy Fieri on being named The Next Food Network Star. Guy, who owns three restaurants and a catering business here in Sonoma County, edged out seven other hopefuls from around the country to win a contract for a six-episode cooking series on the Food Network.

I had Guy pegged to win from the first week of the competition. He has the kind of big personality that’s tailor-made for television — loud, funny, and quirky without being grating or obnoxious. I predict his show will be a hit, if they give him a decent time slot.

Guy’s food is pretty darned good, too. I’ve never eaten at any of his restaurants, but I’ve attended a couple of events his company catered, and I’ve sampled the fare at his Johnny Garlic's concession booth at the county fair over the years. Tasty.

Perhaps the mention here will net me a free dinner or something. Will blog for food.
