Celebrity Chefs

Guy Fieri shares his delicious holiday wish list

The Food Network star dishes about his new barbecue joint aboard Carnival Cruise Line, life in the spotlight and how to find the best food in town.

 

Guy Fieri is definitely planning on taking a trip to Flavor Town this holiday season.

The celebrity chef and Food Network host is spending the holidays at his ranch in Northern California with his family. “It just started to snow up there so my little guy, Ryder, is pretty excited,” Fieri told The Post. “We always cook Dungeness crab in some form, like cioppino, on Christmas Eve.”

Fieri is hoping for some gourmet gifts this holiday season, too:

1. Dry aged rib-eye - “There’s nothing that beats dry aged meat. The dry-aging reduces the amount and intensifies the flavor — focucing on quality, not quantity.”

2. White truffles - “The only way to justify buying and having a big white truffle is to blame it on the holidays!”

3. Snow - “Growing up in Northern California, I’ve only seen snow at Christmas maybe twice in my life! I was always jealous of my cousins on the East Coast with their white Christmases. I would love to see my kids experience that. We always have sleds standing by at the ranch!”

Fieri also told us that every year, his gets get to open one gift on Christmas Eve. “As they’ve gotten older, Lori and I have started giving them funny costumes like the pink bunny suit from ‘A Christmas Story,'” he said.
