What caught my attention about Guy Fier food celebrity on Food Network was his passion to share real food and the people who create it. It was no surprise when I saw he was on the front cover of SUCCESS Magazine this month and I just had to share some of the highlights from the write up and a favorite GUY recipe.
Highlights from the Interview
On food: “Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat.”
On fatherhood: “My dad’s my best friend, so being a good father to Hunter and Ryder, spending time with them and teaching them, that’s No. 1 for me.”
On his critics: “What you get is what you see with me. There’s no show. I’m like anybody else. You get enough, you can get beat up. You can get hurt. You can get frustrated. You can get demoralized. What am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to stop being me? If someone boos a quarterback, does that mean he stops throwing his favorite pass?”
On his unique style: “If I probably didn’t have tattoos, or if I probably didn’t bleach my hair, or if I probably didn’t wear blue jeans and a T-shirt to fancy things, if I didn’t do things that make me look like someone who’s whacked out of their mind, it’d probably be different. But then again, that’s how I wanna dress. And I like my tattoos. And I like my hair cut the way it is.”
One of my favorite recipes my family and I have enjoyed over the past few years was found on MyJuiceCup.com It is a super easy GUY recipe to put together and you don’t have to be sushi lover to enjoy it.
