Food Networks Chefography

I hope you all had a chance to catch Food Networks Chefography on Guy. If I do say so myself with all I know about him, I could not have put together a more in depth look at where Guy came from, and what it took to get him where he is today. What a great job to all involved. If you have not seen it, beg, borrow, or steal someones Tivo and check it out, you won't be dissapointed.

Headed home!! But not Guy!!

With the Krew headed home on a 6am flight out of Buffalo Guy is headed to some great triple D locations in the Buffalo area, and then off to NYC to shoot Guys Big Bite at the Food Network Studios. That is 15 days straight, of shooting the shows you all love.

Thanks for watching and hope you enjoy all the new shows coming out.

On the Canadian Border

Pulling into Seneca Niagara late Saturday night for a little down time and great conversation about the days events, and planning for the SOLD out 2500 person cooking demo on Sunday night. With everybody off to bed Dirty P and myself decide to walk to Canada, cause how many people do you know that have walked into Canada?

So it is Sunday morning and we are off to Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours on the Niagara River. WOW is all I can say. If you ever get the chance to do this make it a priority on your list. 1800 horsepower jet boats that do donuts at speed, and proceed through class 5 rapids till you can’t take on anymore water. As Guy said this is “OFF DA HOOK”. We all would like to give a HUGE thanks to the staff at Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours for taking such great care of us. What an awesome experience!!!!!!

So time to eat and did we find an amazing place to eat with an incredible view. Water Street Landing in Lewiston NY, from the Mac and Cheese to the Lobster Bisque to the Filet Mignon sandwich on a pretzel roll, yes a pretzel roll. All I can say is this food was out of bounds. We would like to thank the staff for the tour of the facility and feeding 6 hungry guys some great great food.

It was now time to get back to the Casino for sound check, and stage set. Running late as always I have to give the staff at Seneca Niagara a huge thanks, everything was on point thank you very much.

The show was crazy, loud, and ran an hour over. With the show coming to a close it was a mad dash to the stage where Guy was signing anything people handed him.

Again a Big THANKS to everybody we came across in the Niagara area you all are GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Buffalo Wings in Buffalo

So back on the Thursday night Red Eye with the Krew. Had some new road trip boys with us this time, Pintor and Milich decided to tag along and see what Guido does on the road. Let me tell you that on the way home they were asking, When is the next trip? what a great time.

So it was Guy, Me, Dirty P, and the 2 new comers to the road and was it AWESOME. We rolled in on Friday afternoon for some pre shoot instructions and it was off to dinner for some Buffalo wings. Thanks to the Anchor Bar in downtown Buffalo for your Hospitality and the KILLER wings.

It was an early night due too the 6am call time for the shoot, I can't tell you to much about it at this time, I can tell you that it was out of bounds. A big thanks to all of the Cast and Krew that made this an great event. I can tell you that it airs on the Food Network on Oct. 17th, so set your Tivo to see another crazy show with Guy.

With Buffalo behind us on a late Saturday night we were headed to Niagara for a Cooking demo at Seneca Niagara.

Come back tomorrow and I will tell you all about it.

Atlantic City Heat

Atlantic City started with a bang... hanging out backstage with Hall and Oates, what a great concert. I would like to put out a big thanks to all the staff at the Casino Borgata that helped us get into the concert and got us through the crowds.

From Autograph session--to personal appearances--the food all over AC was amazing. Thanks to Ceasars Executive Chef Kieth and his staff, you guys "ROCK"!!!

Saturday night we had a great meet a greet hangin' out with Food Celebrities Emeril, Duff, Ingrid Hoffman and Ted Allen to name a few.

But let me give you a little hidden secret in AC. White House has the most amazing sandwiches I personally have ever had. "OFF DA HOOK". If you get to AC you have to go eat there, make it number 1 on your list.
