An excerpt from the Fabulous Food Show's conversation with Guy Fieri:
Fabulous Food Show: The official bio from your PR team describes you as the Food Networks “bad Boy” star. Why Bad Boy?
Guy Fieri: I don’t know. I didn’t write it. They just stereotype me because of the tattoos and spiked bleached hair and my thing for hot rods and rock-n-roll. But I’m a good guy, a dad and a real family man.
FFS: You started in the front of the house as a waiter, maitre d’ and manager. Then you became a Food Network celebrity after entering a contest. Where does cooking come into the mix?
GF: When I was 12, I’d cook for my parents dinner parties, making food for eight. I’ve been working in kitchens since I was a teenager. I started out washing dishes and doing prep and have been a line cook, a bartender, even a flambé captain which meant I cooked tableside in the restaurant. Now I have five restaurants and I develop recipes for all of them.
FFS: Do you cook at home for your wife and kids, for friends?
GF: I make dinner as often as I can. We usually eat whatever I’m testing for the restaurants and the shows. It could be anything from a Vietnamese style banh mi sandwich to beet salad with goat cheese or shepherds pie.
