Guy Fieri Hits the Road for an Epic RV Adventure Through the Pacific Northwest





Guy Fieri Hits the Road for an Epic RV Adventure Through the Pacific Northwest on the New Series “Guy’s All-American Road Trip”
The four-episode series will premiere on Friday, June 3 at 9:00/8:00c on Food Network.
[via press release from Food Network]
GUY FIERI HITS THE ROAD WITH HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOR AN EPIC RV ADVENTURE THROUGH THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST ON THE NEW SERIES “GUY’S ALL-AMERICAN ROAD TRIP”

Stops Include Locales in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington

The Four Episode Series Will Premiere on Friday, June 3rd at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network

NEW YORK – May 5, 2022 – On Friday, June 3rd at 9pm ET/PT, Guy Fieri, his wife Lori, and his sons Hunter and Ryder load up their RV to hit the road, along with a caravan of campers full of family and friends, for a road trip they will never forget on Guy’s All-American Road Trip. The monster journey up the coast will be filled with big adventure, fun competitions, and unbelievable meals, as the Fieris and their friends make their way up the coast from Northern California through Oregon and into Washington. From surfing sand dunes to an exhilarating jet-boat excursion down the Rogue River, and from camping feasts featuring fresh ceviche from crab and cod right out of the water and a whole-hog barbecue, this road trip is full of mouthwatering meals, iconic destinations, and lots of action-packed activities.

“Guy takes audiences on the ultimate summer adventure on Guy’s All-American Road Trip, giving them an up-close-and-personal look at his incredible family vacation. And with Guy at the wheel, audiences know they can expect a wild and fun ride filled with over-the-top camp side meals and some crazy competitions,” said Jane Latman, President, Home & Food Content and Streaming, Warner Bros. Discovery.

“I’m stoked to hit the open road with my friends and family for an unforgettable trip where we’ll experience all the flavors, people, and places that make the West Coast so special. And of course, I’m throwin’ in a little bit of competition to keep them all on their toes!” said Fieri.

Before they hit the highway, the Fieris meet up with the five other families coming along for the adventure. Notorious for surprises, Guy reveals to the group that this isn’t an average vacation as there will be family vs. family competitions at each stop along the way. First up is Alexandre Family Farms, an organic, regenerative farm in Crescent City, CA, where they learn firsthand how to milk cows, and one family creams the others with the most amount of milk. The farm fun doesn’t stop there, as they head over to the chicken coop for a dizzying egg relay race. Then they head to Gold Beach, Oregon for a wild 64-mile long jet-boat excursion. After working up an appetite on the water, the Fieris and friends go back to the campsite to enjoy a real deal, homemade Mexican feast with Al Pastor, Carne Asada, and Achiote Chicken Fajitas.

With hundreds of miles to cover, and incredible roadside eats to enjoy, including campground curry, homemade pork eggrolls, and fresh Dungeness crab boil, the Fieris continue to lead the way up the West Coast. In Florence, Oregon, Guy and his buddies go on an epic ride in the sand dunes in Honeyman State Park, while the kids try sand boarding. Plus, the families go head-to head in mini golf and go-carting. Back at the campsite, Ryder gets a lesson on how to make the crispiest fried chicken.

Next up, they stop in Leavenworth, Washington to check out a Bavarian village for some traditional treats at a bakery known for their gingerbread. It’s game on as the families compete to decorate the most impressive gingerbread house. Then, there’s more thrills and competition as the families go ziplining. Before heading to the campgrounds, they make a pit stop for outrageous milkshakes at a retro stainless-steel diner in the middle of the mountains.

Ending the trip on a high note, Guy and Hunter visit Jim Belushi at his family’s Oregon farm to cook up Albanian Belushi-family recipes, as well as American favorites like ribs and pizza – done with Guy’s special touch. Then, there is one last challenge as the families battle it out in their final game to determine who is winner.

Fans can see photos from the road trip at FoodNetwork.com/GuysRoadTrip and can get ideas for their own vacation. Plus, they can share their own trip highlights using #GuysRoadTrip.

Guy’s All-American Road Trip is produced by Citizen Pictures for Food Network.

Ambitious Chefs Battle for Their Future and Dream Job





Ambitious Chefs Battle for Their Future and Dream Job in Food Network’s “Chopped: Desperately Seeking Sous Chef”
The five-part tournament premieres Tuesday, May 31 at 9:00/8:00c.
[via press release from Food Network]
AMBITIOUS CHEFS BATTLE FOR THEIR FUTURE AND DREAM JOB IN “CHOPPED: DESPERATELY SEEKING SOUS CHEF”

Five-Part Tournament Premieres Tuesday, May 31st at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network

Sixteen Chefs Compete for Job Offer from the Chopped Judges

NEW YORK – April 14, 2022 – Talented and ambitious sous chefs step into the Chopped Kitchen for a chance at securing a life-changing opportunity in the new five-part tournament, Chopped: Desperately Seeking Sous Chef, premiering Tuesday, May 31st at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network. Hosted by the venerable Ted Allen, each episode of the tournament features four chefs showcasing their culinary skills over three rounds – appetizer, entrée, and dessert – as they are challenged to utilize the mystery basket of ingredients and create breathtaking dishes to impress judges Maneet Chauhan, Scott Conant and Chris Santos. The judges are critiquing the chefs’ cooking skills along with their attitude, leadership, and ability to multitask to determine who has what it takes to make it to the finale for a chance at winning the title of grand champion and a job offer by Scott, Maneet or Chris to join their restaurants as a sous chef.

Never have the Chopped judges had so much to lose and the chefs so much to gain. To succeed, the 16 chefs must have the stamina and strength to handle the pressure of the most prominent kitchens in America with just one chance to prove they are worthy of this opportunity. After the final elimination, the victorious chef gets to choose which enticing path to take from either Scott, Maneet and Chris. There hasn’t been a moment like this in Chopped history, with every part of the competition being the toughest job interview of these chefs’ lives.

“Chopped continues to push the boundaries with its competition format, with viewers tuning in each week for its compelling challenges, expert critique and pulse-racing entertainment,” said Courtney White, President, Food Network and Streaming Food Content, Discovery Inc. “The winner walking away with a life-altering opportunity from Chris, Maneet or Scott, all titans in their industry, is the ultimate Chopped prize.”

Throughout the competition the hungry chefs bring everything they have to the kitchen to show off their culinary techniques for their dream job. During the preliminary battles, the chefs must tackle an appetizer basket that includes fish-shaped cakes and a whole plant-based chicken, while a cut of meat proves problematic to work with in the entrée round that have the chefs scrambling to get dinner on the table for a potential future boss. In a dessert round, the judges wonder what to expect when they bite into caponata and galaxy gelatin cake as ingredients. Tensions are high as the four chefs who make it to the finale open the appetizer basket and find a fusion pasta and a delicacy from the sea. A specialty of Naples is the curveball ingredient of a difficult entrée basket, then, in the dessert round, a stinky fruit and a spicy ice cream are a part of the culinary puzzle.

Fans can get to know the competing chefs and get a sneak peek at some of the mystery basket ingredients at FoodNetwork.com/Chopped. Follow along with the competition on social media and tell us who you think should win the grand prize using #Chopped.

Discovery and AT&T Close WarnerMedia Transaction

Combination of Discovery and WarnerMedia Creates Warner Bros. Discovery, Global Leader in Entertainment and Streaming

Warner Bros. Discovery to Begin Trading on the Nasdaq as “WBD” on Monday, April 11

NEW YORK and DALLAS, April 8, 2022 – Today Discovery, Inc. and AT&T Inc.* (NYSE:T) announced that they have closed their transaction to combine the WarnerMedia business with Discovery. The combination creates a premier standalone global media and entertainment company, Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc., which will begin trading on the Nasdaq with the start of trading on Monday, April 11, under the new ticker symbol “WBD.”

Warner Bros. Discovery will create and distribute the world’s most differentiated and complete portfolio of content, brands and franchises across television, film and streaming. The new company combines WarnerMedia’s premium entertainment, sports and news assets with Discovery’s leading non-fiction and international entertainment and sports businesses, including Discovery Channel, discovery+, Warner Bros. Entertainment, CNN, CNN+, DC, Eurosport, HBO, HBO Max, HGTV, Food Network, Investigation Discovery, TLC, TNT, TBS, truTV, Travel Channel, MotorTrend, Animal Planet, Science Channel, New Line Cinema, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Turner Classic Movies and others.

“Today’s announcement marks an exciting milestone not just for Warner Bros. Discovery but for our shareholders, our distributors, our advertisers, our creative partners and, most importantly, consumers globally,” said David Zaslav, Warner Bros. Discovery chief executive officer. “With our collective assets and diversified business model, Warner Bros. Discovery offers the most differentiated and complete portfolio of content across film, television and streaming. We are confident that we can bring more choice to consumers around the globe while fostering creativity and creating value for shareholders. I can’t wait for both teams to come together to make Warner Bros. Discovery the best place for impactful storytelling.”

“We are at the dawn of a new age of connectivity, and today marks the beginning of a new era for AT&T,” said John Stankey, AT&T chief executive officer. “With the close of this transaction, we expect to invest at record levels in our growth areas of 5G and fiber, where we have strong momentum, while we work to become America’s best broadband company. At the same time, we’ll sharpen our focus on returns to shareholders. We expect to invest for growth, strengthen our balance sheet and reduce our debt, all while continuing to pay an attractive dividend that puts us among the top dividend paying stocks in America.

“In WarnerMedia, Discovery inherits a talented and innovative team and a dynamic growing and global company that is well positioned to lead the transformation that’s taking place across media and entertainment, direct-to-consumer distribution and technology. The combination of the two companies will strengthen WarnerMedia’s established and leading position in media and streaming. And our shareholders will now have a significant stake in Warner Bros. Discovery and its future successes. We look forward to seeing what the WBD team accomplishes with these industry-leading assets.”

Additionally, shareholders of AT&T received 0.241917 shares of WBD for each share of AT&T common stock they held at close. As a result, AT&T shareholders received 1.7 billion shares of WBD, representing 71% of WBD shares on a fully diluted basis. Discovery’s existing shareholders own the remainder of the new company. In addition to their new shares of WBD common stock, AT&T shareholders continue to hold the same number of shares of AT&T common stock they held immediately prior to close.

CHEF ALEX GUARNASCHELLI RETURNS WITH AMBUSH-STYLE COOKING BATTLES IN NEW SEASON OF “SUPERMARKET STAKEOUT”

Season Premieres Tuesday, May 17th at 10pm ET/PT on Food Network

NEW YORK – April 7, 2022 – The action hits the aisles as Supermarket Stakeout returns for a new season, premiering Tuesday, May 17th at 10pm ET/PT on Food Network. Hosted by Food Network staple, Alex Guarnaschelli, each hour-long episode presents viewers with outdoor cooking battles where anything can happen, as four talented chefs persuade unsuspecting customers to sell their groceries as they attempt to turn the ingredients into themed culinary delights. A rotating panel of judges ultimately determines which competitor made the most successful menu over three rounds and is awarded a year’s worth of groceries.

In each episode, the four chefs face off in a state-of-the-art, pop-up kitchen outside a grocery store, with the competitors given a budget of $500 to use through three rounds. In the first stakeout heat, the chefs must negotiate with shoppers for their grocery bags, sight unseen, as they are challenged to create a themed meal for the judges. In the second heat, the three remaining chefs use the leftover money from their budget to ambush shoppers for their groceries. In this round the chefs can see what’s in each shopper’s bag, but they can only make one purchase. In the last round, the final two chefs can explore groceries from as many shoppers as they like, but they can only buy five items total in their bid to find the right ingredients for their dishes and walk away with the grand prize. Viewers can also watch Alex take on some of the toughest carts from prior seasons in Supermarket Stakeout: What Would Alex Make? with new episodes beginning Tuesday, May 31st at 11pm ET/PT.

“Alex continues to shine across Food Network’s daytime and primetime programming. We are thrilled to bring new episodes of Supermarket Stakeout to viewers that are full of signature ‘anything can happen’ moments and unexpected challenges that fans have come to love,” said Courtney White, President, Food Network and Streaming Food Content, Discovery Inc.

Alex Guarnaschelli is a world-renowned chef who, after attending La Varenne Culinary School in Burgundy, France, began her international culinary journey training in Paris and New York with some of the world’s most acclaimed chefs including Guy Savoy and Daniel Boulud. In 2003, Guarnaschelli was given the opportunity to expand her repertoire and become the executive chef at Butter, where she has since created her own eclectic American and green-market inspired menu. Guarnaschelli first appeared on Food Network in 2006 and has since been part of hundreds of episodes of programming on the network, including as a judge on Chopped, co-host of The Kitchen, and star of Alex vs America. She also hosts the award-winning digital series, Fix Me a Plate, and is the author of the cookbooks “Old-School Comfort Food: The Way I Learned to Cook” (2013), “The Home Cook: Recipes to Know by Heart” (2017), and most recently “Cook With Me: 150 Recipes for the Home Cook” (2020).

NEW YORK – March 31, 2022 – The brawl returns with superstar chefs Anne Burrell and Jet Tila challenging the undefeated champion, Bobby Flay, for a chance at leading Food Network’s next ‘Master of ‘Cue’ to victory in the new season of BBQ Brawl, premiering with a special 90-minute episode on Monday, May 9th at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network. Through eight episodes, Bobby, Anne, and Jet mentor and coach nine upcoming stars in the barbecue world with culinary battles that test their skills and their ability to work together as a team. With the captains guiding their teams every step of the way, a panel of judges featuring barbecue legend Rodney Scott, famed chef Brooke Williamson, and lifestyle personality Carson Kressley decide which competitor is worthy of being crowned ‘Master of ‘Cue’ and appear across Food Network’s digital platforms to become its official BBQ expert for the year.

Set at the famed Star Hill Ranch in Austin, Texas, the competitors are divided into three teams under the tutelage of Bobby, Anne, and Jet. In each episode the captains must do everything in their power to keep their team members in the game – including diving into the action themselves – guiding the hopefuls in two rounds of grilling and smoking challenges. The team that is determined by the judges to be least successful in the challenges will have one of their contenders eliminated. Bobby, Jet and Anne will give it their all to stay in contention, but in the end, only one competitor and captain will reign supreme. Viewers can also stream BBQ Brawl on discovery+ with new episodes available weekly, starting Monday, May 9th.

“This year’s intense barbecue challenges, breakout BBQ hopefuls, and top-flight Food Network chefs that put their reputations on the line has BBQ Brawl promising to again strike a chord with viewers this season,” said Courtney White, President, Food Network and Streaming Food Content, Discovery Inc. “With Anne Burrell and Jet Tila challenging Bobby with their competitive DNA and deep culinary experience, the excitement this season runs hotter than ever.”

The new batch of contenders arrive at the ranch in the premiere and must introduce themselves to the captains by making a signature skewer that packs big flavor in a little bite in hopes of being picked by Bobby, Anne, and Jet for their team. Then, the competitors face off in the first team brawl full of high stakes and featuring a major competition-changing twist. In another episode, the BBQ hopefuls showcase their talent by creating a dinner party in two hours using only the ingredients provided to them in coolers stocked with everything you would find in the kitchens of different households. And see what happens when the competitors are challenged to communicate with BBQ lovers across social media to prove they can cook and connect with fans wherever they may be. The competitors that make it to the finale have one more chance to prove themselves worthy of the ‘Master of ‘Cue’ title and walk away with ultimate bragging rights. The remaining competitors must go all out to impress the judges as they cook a full BBQ dinner feast in only six hours using a whole suckling pig. But it won’t be easy, as the judges throw twists and turns at the competitors throughout the challenge.
