A Welcome Addition to the Food Network!

My husband and I followed Guy Fieri through the "Next Food Network
Star" competition, and he was our early favorite throughout - we were
thrilled when he eventually won his own show. But even then we had no
idea just how terrific his show would end up being! It's simply amazing
how composed and relaxed Guy is before the camera - those new to his
show might find it hard to believe that he hasn't spent his whole life
in the spotlight. I've seen even veteran Food Network chefs that don't
look as cool and comfortable as Guy does in only a few months of
taping, and this adds a wonderfully relaxed, disarming charm to his
screen presence and the entire atmosphere of the show.
What makes Guy's Big Bite even more of a breath of fresh air is that
his recipes aren't pretentious or over-complicated. He is able to
successfully cross the viewer demographic to appeal to both men and
women with his fun, easy-going style, and the food that results is
nothing short of delicious (his "Breath Mint Pie" he presented during
the competition is a huge hit in our house).
I highly recommend this wonderful show for both experienced and amateur
cooks alike, or even just for foodies looking for an alternative to the
standard "happy homemaker" fare usually seen on daytime cooking shows.
