  • Guy Fieri from the Food Network invades DCA Food & Wine Festival

    Hi Guys,
    Didn't know if there was a seperate area for Food & Wine reports so i figured this is a good place for it.

    So Saturday 4/26, Grumpibell and I made a special trip to DCA to watch the culinary demo with Guy Fieri. We are both HUGE Food Network fans and we love all of his shows on the Food Network.
    So here are some pics from the day! Enjoy!

    We're almost in!!! YAY!!! Btw, we are SOOO excited at this point

    Giant jumbalaya sandwich! That's sooo money!


    Afterwards we got photos/autographs


    All in all a great time. The food was amazing, there was lots of shade and although it was very hot, the kitchen staff kept us well supplied with lots of complimentary bottled water!

    Hope you enjoyed! Thanks

      Yeah he is a really great guy! Very personable and totally appreciates all of his fans!
      The sandwich is the one he made during the demo. He gave it to a few marines in the audience and they didn't touch it so we used it for pictur-tunities! hehehhehehehe

            Ok seriously...this is getting irritating! How am I almost NEVER at the parks when someone I admire is there! Co'mon!

            Great pictures, looks like a ton of fun!

              Another Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives fan here (I watch every Monday... when I remember). That is so cool you got to meet Guy. He seems really cool.

                Great pictures! Looks like you had fun! We saw him on Saturday and Sunday. He was walking around with a plaid on Sunday with his family. Seems like a down to earth guy.

                Thanks for sharing!!!

                    I think Guy is a great asset to Food Network. I'm glad to see some pictures from his demo. It's nice to hear that he is as nice as he seems on TV. Thanks for sharing.

                      Guy really is a cool cat. He started out up here in Santa Rosa with a small chain (two restaurants) called "Johnny Garlic's". Then he opened "Tex Wasabi's"...a mix of Tex-Mex with sushi. Actually really good. I've met him a few times both before his bout of fame and afterwards. He's always seemed genuinely nice and very funny. I'm glad to see him doing so well. The local papers up here were really following him when he was in the Food Network competition.

                              I agree. Who would have ever thought to make a jambalaya sandwich? Brilliant!

                              And thanks for the trip report and photos. I wish I could have made it there for his demonstration. So I lived vicariously through your trip report. And Guy seems like a cool cat.
