Throwback Thursday-Guy’s Grocery Games (2013-Present)

There is nothing like a challenge to test one’s abilities.

Guy’s Grocery Games has been part of the lineup on Food Network since 2013. Hosted by Guy Fieri, 4 chefs are challenged to create unique three dishes in a faux grocery store. Each challenge has a theme and at least one obstacle. Once the challenges have been completed, three celebrity judges decide who is the winner of that challenge. By the end of the show, one chef is deemed the winner and has to chance to take home up to $20,000.

What I like about Guy’s Grocery Games is that it’s fun to watch. It’s fun to watch the contestants work and guess who will be the winner. It’s almost like a guessing game that ups the ante as the contestants are eliminated.

I recommend it.


Throwback Thursday-Diners Drive-Ins and Dives (2007-Present)

There is nothing in the world like your favorite local restaurant. Walking into this restaurant and ordering your favorite dish is akin to going home and eating a favorite meal as only a loved one can make it.

Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (2007-Present) has been a staple of the Food Network schedule for over a decade. Hosted by Guy Fieri, the viewer is taken all over the country (and all over the world) to restaurants that while are not exactly high-end, are extremely pleasing to the taste buds of their patrons. Visiting establishments of varying sizes and cuisines, Fieri takes the viewer to the kitchen where one member of the kitchen staff walks the viewer through the step by step process of creating at least one popular dish from the menu.

I really like Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. While it technically falls under the banner of reality television, it doesn’t feel like reality television. It feels like your taking a road trip and along the way, stopping for a delicious meal at a restaurant that you might have walked into, had you not decided to go on the road trip.

I recommend it.
