Are you ready for what I'm about to declare, people? Guy Fieri is a killer chef. Yes, the man combines outrageous flavors, and he piles on the adjectives as high as the food on each plate. Everything about Guy is loud and might be perceived as stereotypically American and a target for scoffing. I can't speak for his restaurants, but I have experienced food prepared under Guy's direction on two separate occasions (New York City Wine & Food Festival and Pebble Beach Food & Wine), and both blew me away. Haters are going to hate, but the guy can translate bold flavors into plate-licking-good dishes. Need more convincing? OK, here we go!
