Celebrity chef Guy Fieri is one awesome dude! He can cook, he has personality and he clearly has heart! Guy put that heart to work recently, cooking non-stop BBQ for California wildfire victims and first responders!
Constantly referring to taking his food tasters to “Flavortown”, Guy has made quite the name for himself in the food world. Guy has 6 restaurants to his name, and a 10-year run on the Food Network, Fieri knows how to run the food industry.

Guy was one of the many California citizens who had to evacuate their homes due to the wildfires ripping across the state. Fieri, who calls Santa Rosa home, says it was 2 a.m. when they had to leave their home.
“The smoke was really bad,” Fieri told KQED. “We had to evacuate at 2 in the morning, and we grabbed what we could, taking pictures off the wall as fast as we could. Jumped in the truck, loaded in the dogs, and away we went.”
While many people would typically worry about their own well being and their families, Guy decided to use his celebrity status and insanely awesome cooking skills to help out the horrific situation any way he could.
“I called the Salvation Army in Santa Rosa and I said, ‘I’m ready, I’ve got an army, I’m ready to help,'” Fieri told KQED. “And they said, ‘Bring it.'”
Fieri gathered his workers and began preparing meals for all the evacuees and first responders.
Fieri and his crew have prepared meals of pork loin, mushroom gravy, a pineapple apple teriyaki sauce, braised cabbage with apple, onion and brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes and baked beans.
“This is the least we can do,” Fieri says. “We’re so sorry for friends who have lost homes. There’s a lot of really good people coming together. It’s terrible in so many ways, but it’s wonderful to see great people coming together.”
Fieri was able to pull all this together with the help of Operation BBQ Relief, a non-profit which helps feed those affected by natural disasters.
What a Guy!
