For those of you who are loyal Food Network fans, you'll recognize the vivacious man in the above picture as host of the popular, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives as well as Guy's Big Bite.  Regardless of whether you love him or hate him, Guy Fieri is a big food personality who's not going anywhere.  In fact, he recently visited Astoria's popular dive bar, Sparrow and got a taste for what a real burger with herbed fries should taste like!

And...he also just launched a cookbook called Guy Fieri Food, which highlights his 150 favorite eats, including lots of comforting dishes turned upside the head.  Things like watermelon pork tacos, firecracker wings, a Chicago Italian beef sandwich, Nor Cal carnitas and much more.  The book is full of funky looking illustrations that totally channel Guy's personality. honor of Guy's big book release, I'm giving away 2 copies just for you.  Here's how you can get your hands on one:

  1. Chorizo Corned Beef Hash at MexiQ in Astoria. Amazing!

  2. Deep fried turkey with grilled corn on the cob (wtih cheese melted on top!) and yellow rice .. comfort food summertime style, can't go wrong!

  3. I had a combination of Mexican and Chinese food. It was a bit unusual.

  4. Shrimp + grits paired with she-crab soup (made w/ brandy--yum!) down in Charleston, that low-country cooking!

  5. The "leftover fried chicken at WD-50 was outrageously delicious and original. Layers of various chicken filets have been pressed into a terrine, before being cook sous vide, and then chilled again. The cold fried chicken is then topped with dollops of buttermilk whipped into a ricotta, almost like cool mashed potatoes. Teardrops of tabasco honey add a bit of heat, and shiny mounds of sturgeon caviar remind you just how far from leftover fried chicken this brilliant dish actually aspires. Crispy fried chicken skin and chervil were the perfect garnishes. (

  6. Lobster and shrimp mac and cheese with 4 different cheeses.. mmmmmmm

  7. Gumbo with chicken and andouille, sandwiches.

  8. Not at all inventive, but my favorite comfort food is my grandmother's scrambled eggs. There's just something about how she can get them perfectly fluffy and seasoned just so that has taken my entire adult life to master, and still I come up short. Thinking about them just reminds me of lazy summers as a kid when I would stay with my grandparents in the wooded suburbs. Unfortunately, my grandmother is no longer with us so I'll never know her secret to perfect eggs, but they'll always make me think of home.
