We got this report from writer Michael Mooney on location of the Guy Fieri photo shoot. The American restaurateur, chef and television personality spent the day with SUCCESS for an upcoming issue.
“We’ve just spent a great day with Guy Fieri. We started at the winery that produces his new, high end wine, and had a hilarious photoshoot. Then we headed to Guy’s house in Santa Rosa, where we hung out and listened to music, and he gave me a quick cooking lesson in his incredible outdoor, open-air kitchen. We cut up some veggies, cooked some chicken and steak (“Salt is the key,” he told us), and had even more food brought in from his restaurant. We played with his dogs and ate (and ate and ate), until everyone was exhausted. He was an impossibly generous host.”
