A Passion For Good Food

I love the show on Food Network and now have the book! Guy Fieri's passion for good food, leads him many times off the beaten path to find the best home-cooking. A wonderful collection of culinary delight!

DISAPPOINTED

I am very disappointed in this book. I waited a while for it. There is only 1 recipe in it that interests me. Don't get me wrong, love the show and love Guy. I just don't love this book. It's being returned.

    Was hoping for more recipes, less 'chat'

    I was a little disappointed in this book. It had me so pumped when I saw it on Food TV. I was wanting more recipes, less 'chat'. It's got great pictures and it's entertaining, but not what I was hoping

    Where's the beef?

    Guy is known for his wild personality and great restaraunt pics. We follow his show and look forward to his eclectic diner pics. None of that came through in his book. We were so disappointed with the lack of content and character. This was given as a requested present and both the giver and receiver were bummed by the book. Hope the next one is better!

    Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives

    I have only one complaint. The author "leads" the reader on by building up a particular recipe. Then, he offers the ingredients of another menu item. Now, I understand that some recipes are "secret." But, don't lead me on about how good it is, and then, unable to provide the recipe, give me another. What a letdown!
    Build the story around the recipe you CAN give us, not on the one you can't.
    Otherwise, good book.

    Wheres the Sizzle

    Love the TV show - LOVE Guy but I was a little disappointed in the book. Not necessarily the content but I would have liked a hard back copy - it is a cookbook after all - and it would have been nice to have some colored pictures of the receipts.

    For fans only

    Fun for fans of the show but it will leave you wanting information on all the places Guy has visited. Recipes are tasty - good comfort food.
