Celebrated chef Guy Fieri is back to mining for food in the Flavortown river with his new cookbook, Guy On Fire.
The #1 New York Times bestselling author’s latest tome offers 130 recipes for full-tilt outdoor cooking—plus tips on how to succeed at grilling, camping, tailgating, and being Bigger, Badder, and more Awesome than everyone else.
“I’ve always been about making it happen outside,” writes Fieri. “When it comes to cooking and eating outdoors, I take it to the extreme.“
Be sure to pick up a copy of your own when the book is officially released on May 6 ($18.96). And in case we need to sell you even harder, the book includes a recipe for Donkey Sauce.
Now, without further ado, we bring you the 10 best lines from Guy On Fire.
On his love for chicken wings
“I love chicken wings. No one said it better than Chris Farley in Tommy Boy: ‘Me lovey wingy.'”
“A lot of people, like my sister from another mista Rachel Ray, are not big fans of the food lube.”
On knowing your demographic
“Fifty percent of the people who buy this cookbook are going to turn up their noses at charred octopus and white bean salad.”
On how to keep the children healthy
“If you’re going to serve a vegetable with mass appeal for all ages, and it isn’t a fried onion ring, it’s gotta be crispy fried zucchini.”
On talking Mexican
“Let’s get the pronunciation right: holla-pain-yo”
On breaking out from soft-shell crabs
“If you have yet to enjoy soft-shell crab, this may be the recipe that breaks you out.”
“Salmon is the international ambassador of seafood.”
On saying “It’s sweet and creamy meets hot and dreamy”
“I can’t believe I just said that—I’m not even drinking.”
On barbecue gloves
“The use of gloves does not eliminate the requirements to wash your hands—they’re not ‘magic gloves.'”
On BIG flavor and BIG portions
“When cooking for a big crew of hungry dudes who’ve been sleeping in a parking lot, do not think you can get away with fettucini Alfredo.”
