still smiling

Food Network's Guy Fieri was in town on Thursday. I recorded a radio interview with him for our cluster's public affairs program that morning. Later in the day he was on WBIR before attending a benefit for the Abundant Life Kitchen, a joint program of the Knox Area Rescue Ministries and the Second Harvest Food Bank.

When Guy won "The Next Food Network Star" competition last April, I wondered if he was the same spiky-haired person I had spotted in Lynchburg a year a half earlier. It was. I showed Guy the photo we posed for back then. He wasn't famous at the time. I just had a feeling that he would be.

We were at the Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational Barbecue. Guy was filming a TV pilot which fell by the wayside when he entered and won the Food Network contest. As winner of the competition, he got his own show called "Guy's Big Bite." He has another show starting soon called "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," which sounds like a show I would want to host if I were a chef.
