Mixed bag of biz for Guy Fieri this week

Wow. I take a day or two away from blogging, and my email inbox if full, full, full. Here's a brief rundown of the past few days.

The Sun Chronicle reports that fans flocked to downtown Attleboro, Mass, to Morin's Diner in hopes of participating in the Triple-D taping scheduled there on Thursday of this week, July 27th, 2009. I suppose this is why the restaurants are not announced in advance, hmm?

Devoted fans started lining up outside the diner at 4 a.m. "I think some regulars stayed away because they knew what was going on," said owner Billy Morin.

A group of roughly 25 greeted Fieri, including this young fan at left, who had her Diners, Drive-ins and Dives cookbook autographed.

Additional taping will be done 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, to interview guests. Guy will not be present at the second taping.

I rarely see so many Twitters from Guy - one of note - "Just fyi not in kansas city, someone sayin they're me." (Guy's Twitter) So the Kansas City Impostor is still afoot. Argh. Read more about the K.C. Impostor and a Vegas Impersonator here.

Now people are beginning to wonder with whom are they having their picture taken - check out this picture from mmattozzi, titled "Guy Fieri: Probably Not," taken at Comic-Con in San Diego July 25, 2009:

I'm also beginning to suspect there is a Guy Fieri Impostor in Seattle, too. Several Twitters I've seen have him there, when the media has him clear across the country. Does make one wonder ....


While in New York this morning, Friday July 31st, the real Guy Fieri made an appearance on Good Morning America, where they claim Guy's S'more Pizza isn't just for kids!

2 store bought pizza dough
1/2 cup bench flour
1/4 cup corn meal
3 cups mini marshmallows
2 bars dark chocolate
1 sleeve graham crackers, crushed
1/4 cup slivered almonds
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven or grill to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Form pizza dough into 12" – 14" rounds, ¼ inch thick. Bake in oven on pizza stone for 6-8 minutes or until just beginning to brown.

Grill method: Use indirect method: Form dough round, slide onto hot grill, let cook for 3 minutes, turn and add toppings, close grill lid to melt, serve immediately

While pizza crust is cooking, toast slivered in a sauté pan over medium high heat.

Remove and in same pan, melt butter.

When butter is melted, add in graham cracker crumbs, chili powder, cayenne and salt. Cook for 2-3 minutes.

Remove from heat and set aside.

Remove from oven and top with half of the marshmallows, randomly place one bar of chocolate over marshmallows, return to oven, 3-5 minutes of until marshmallows are puffed and lightly browned.

Remove from oven and sprinkle with the graham cracker mixture and top with the toasted slivered almonds. Let rest 3-4 minutes, slice and serve.

Repeat for second pizza.

And if you like the look of that, check out S'more Eggrolls.

And Guy's Gaucho Steak with 4-Herb Chimichurri popped up again. The recipe has been featured in Family Circle Magazine, on and in Sunset Magazine.

On Sunday, #36, the Toyota Camry that Guy Fieri's Knuckle Sandwich brand sponsors races in the 2009 Pennsylvania 500, at Pocono Raceway, this time driven by NASCAR driver Patrick Carpentier.

Last note: if anyone snaps some nice pictures at the Atlantic City Wine & Food Festival ( weekend and you'd like to share, just send me a note. Thanks! I'll be particularly interested in hearing how many people handed $1000 over for "The Feast of Fieri!"
