Guy Fieri Is On A Mission To Find Next Big Food-Road Show On All-New Guy's Big Project

NEW YORK - Guy Fieri has visited thousands of restaurants on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, literally putting food-road shows on the map. Now, Guy is searching for Food Network's next big culinary-travel series. After receiving and sorting through thousands of submissions from hopeful hosts with promising concepts, Guy and his team of food and television experts narrowed it down to a final group of prospects that will vie to have their idea developed into a show on Guy's Big Project. The six-episode journey begins on Sunday, November 5th at 9pm ET/PT and documents every twist and turn as the prospects move from initial pitch through development to network review, to the ultimate end goal - the premiere of a new show on Food Network.

"Over a decade ago I was given a chance that I could never have dreamed of on Food Network Star, and now I'm honored to have the opportunity to help make someone else's dream a reality," said Fieri. "As a producer, I know what it takes to get a show off the ground, and we will see if these prospects have the passion and skills needed, because a great idea is just the first step."


PLAYERS BBQ: Not Quite What It Once Was

RESTAURANT REVIEW - Players BBQ in Madera used to be a very special place. The original owners put their hearts and souls into every plate that came out of that kitchen. Every single day if you didn't get into the restaurant by 2:30pm they would be sold out of tri-tip, ribs or pulled pork, and you might have to order chicken. Then they sold the restaurant to a friend of theirs who experienced issues with keeping the doors open. For over a year you wouldn't know if the restaurant would be open from day to day. Then the place sat closed until the second owner was able to find a new buyer.

Since the new owner took over there have been some changes. First there seems to be more meat available later in the day but then again the sandwiches I had today seemed to have about half the meat that the original owners put on theirs. When the place first opened meat would fall off the sandwiches into the basket. I can't describe today's sandwiches that same way. In fact nothing fell off the buns because there was no meat protruding from the inside of the bun. It reminded me of a Full-o-Bull sandwich without all the fixings, but still costing a dollar more.

TAP HOUSE MADERA: Pizza & Beer Have Never Looked Better But Leave The Kids at Home

RESTAURANT REVIEW – Have you ever wished for an adult-friendly pizza place with a plethora of beers and wines on tap? Have you wanted a pizza & beer but didn't want to hear kids running all over the place beating on arcade games and screaming for more quarters? Well the Tap House in Madera just might be the place you've longed for.

There are always twelve beers and three wines on tap from several of the local breweries and wineries like Drakes Brewing, Riley's Brewing, Sierra Nevada, Tioga Sequoia Brewing and San Joaquin Winery. In the refrigerator was another dozen bottled beers and even more wines. Beers runs from $4.00 to $7.00 a glass. Now the beer selections are mostly local beers or other common beers that can be found in many other pubs. I believe in time their selections will broaden to rarer and more exotic beers.

California Figs Fit A Healthy Lifestyle

FRESNO - As consumer demand for healthy, convenient and tasty food choices increase, so too does the demand for California Figs. Though an Ancient fruit and beloved for centuries, figs are on the up rise as a go-to snack and ingredient.

"Figs fit a healthy lifestyle because they're portable, delicious and nutritious," says Valerie Waters, celebrity fitness trainer to stars like Jennifer Garner and Cindy Crawford throughout her career. "I encourage my clients to seek out good-for-you food that tastes great so when you see California Figs, buy them!"
