When my two little guys were younger, back before they could make their own decisions about what they wanted to watch on T.V and before they were introduced to the likes of Wizards, Sponges and Clones, they loved watching cooking shows with me. I could say “Who wants to watch cooking shows?” and they would cheerfully yell “Me, me… I do!”
Nowadays when I ask that very same question, they just grunt, roll their eyes and look at me like I must be joking. Clearly, they are now too cool to watch The Food Network. But on occasion, if their favorite programs are re-runs or if they are sick and simply don’t have the energy to argue with me, there is still one food show that they enjoy – Guy’s Big Bite with host Guy Fieri.
Guy is definitely a guy’s guy in the kitchen. His spiked blond hair, tattoos, cool race car inspired fridge and manly recipes make him the ultimate food dude! He has several hit food programs like Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Guy’s Big Bite and Guy Off The Hook, his own restaurant and now Guy has released a brand new line of really cool Guy Fieri knives.
Even my boys who rarely get excited about kitchen products anymore – loved these flaming knives. This set includes one 8” “Big Stick” Chef’s knife and a smaller 5.5” “Dragon Dagger” utility knife that are both etched with Guy’s signature flames and logo. The gnarly red and black handles are perfectly contoured for ultimate comfort and each knife comes with its own blade guard with…. what else? Flames on it of course!
I could definitely see this as a gift for a budding young chef or for any great “Guy” who loves to look cool while he’s cooking. Who knows… maybe my boys will come full circle and be larger-than-life television personalities some day – just like their once favorite Food Network Star.
