Fan questions, June 2011

Recently I added a new page to this blog, Have a Question? At the end of each month, I'll share what fans are asking and what answers I could find for them. [Some answers are edited for brevity. ~D]

Bernie from Illinois wrote, "I want to be able to type in the name of a city and see if Guy has been there and where he reviewed. Currently I am in Atlantic City, but would like a search option on the website to do this for anywhere."

Our answer: We have three suggestions for you. One is and another is Food Network Local. Or you can check out our Triple D map! We think they're all excellent resources and easy to use. Let us know what you think! And best of luck in your restaurant searching!


Donna asked, "How many episodes has he shot in the total shows?"

Our answer: Hmm, let's see! I don't have exact numbers, but I do have some rather good, round estimates:
Guy's Big Bite - 150. Diners, Drive-ins and Dives - 150. Minute to Win It - 45. Tailgate Warriors - 5. Ultimate Recipe Showdown - 18. Other TV specials and guest spots - 30, give or take.


Virginia of Whidbey Island wrote, "I recently purchased your latest cookbook and in it you mention that you will miss Morgan. I'm wondering......where did she go? We so love your family and we were concerned. Thank you."

Our answer: The sad news is that Morgan passed away in February of this year. She and Guy were very close, and it was a heart-breaking time for the entire family. Guy now has a memorial tattoo on his forearm, the "Birth of Venus" image that you see on the dedication page of his cookbook.


Leon from Corona asked, "how can i go to a taping of guys big bite?"

Our answer: Unfortunately Guy's Big Bite is a closed set. They're taping new episodes in Guy's backyard at his home in Santa Rosa, CA. We'll be updating this page, Upcoming Events soon, with all of Guy's public events. Hope you can catch him at one!


Chuck from Frisco wrote, "Curious to know what cooktop is used on the show? Thanks fot the info, GREAT show!!"

Our answer: Guy uses a Viking Range at home and on Guy's Big Bite.
