(Posted Friday, April 24, 2009) Louisville, Kentucky's Courier-Journal says, "TV chef Guy Fieri is excited about his first Derby."
In her interview with the Press Democrat, Lori sounded excited about it too. The "Run for the Roses" is held at Churchill Downs on the first Saturday of May.
"But what he really wanted to do as a kid, says Fieri — who is not a small man — was ... wait for it ... become a jockey. Yes, the man who goes coast-to-coast downing Chicago dogs and fiery Texas tamales actually dreamed of riding horses. That is why he's especially excited about coming to Louisville next week to host the inaugural Oaks Bourbon Brunch [reported earlier here]. It will be his first Derby."What will he make for the brunch? Organizers asked him to make a breakfast, so Fieri will make Stuffed French Toast (recipe). "But he's also threatening to do a bourbon-marinated pork chop. 'I'm a big pork fan, and I'm a big bourbon fan,' he said. 'You know what; I've never done the two of them together. It's such a killer chop. So I'm gonna rock that out.'
And what will he wear? "... the guy who likes to rock the '50s bowling shirts has one question about Derby: 'What's the proper attire, bro?'"
I'm sure I don't know. But here's what Heff wore ...
So here's a suggestion for proper attire for Guy ... ?
