NORTH BAY, CA — Celebrity chef Guy Fieri, host of the TV show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” often declares something “Off the hook!” That is exactly how the Hollywood Walk of Fame feels about him, according to a news release announcing Fieri as the recipient of Hollywood Walk of Fame’s 2,664th star.
Fieri, a Santa Rosa resident and Sonoma County winery owner who organized meals for fire victims and first responders during the devastating October 2017 wildfires and again during other recent California fires, is set to formally accept the star at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in a live-streamed dedication ceremony.
“The star will be dedicated in the category of Television at 6201 Hollywood Boulevard in front of Eastown,” the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said in a news release announcing the huge honor for Fieri.
Among the guest speakers for Fieri’s star-dedication ceremony are Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey; Fieri’s son, Hunter Fieri; and Kathleen Finch, chief lifestyle brands officer for Discovery.
Here is what the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the awarding organization of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, had to say about the very deserving Fieri:
A favorite saying of Guy Fieri’s, particularly when he is conveying how great a dish is on his Emmy Award-nominated series, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” is to declare something “off the hook!” and that is how the Hollywood Walk of Fame feels about him, his creative talent with food and his presence in the television arena as a host and executive producer.
“We have just a few television chefs on our historic stellar walk and we are so proud to add him to our mix of Walk of Fame stars,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “We’re ready to cook up some fun and bring Flavortown to Hollywood!”
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce which administers the popular star ceremonies encourages people who are unable to attend and fans around the world to watch the event exclusively on Walkoffame.com.
Guy Fieri, chef, restaurateur, New York Times bestselling-author, Emmy Award-winning television host and executive producer began his love affair with food at the age of 10, selling soft pretzels from a three-wheeled bicycle cart he built with his father called “The Awesome Pretzel Cart.” After selling pretzels and washing dishes for six years, Fieri earned enough money to pursue his dream of studying abroad as an exchange student in Chantilly, France. There he gained a profound appreciation for international cuisine that further strengthened his passion for food. He returned to the U.S. and graduated from the University of Nevada Las Vegas with a degree in hospitality management.
In 2006, Fieri burst into the national scene when he won “Food Network Star.” Since that time, Fieri has created a thriving culinary empire as the host and producer of top-rated TV shows including the long-running, five-time Emmy award-nominated, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” which airs Fridays at 9 p.m. on Food Network; “Guy’s Grocery Games” airing Wednesdays at 9 p.m.; and “Triple D Nation” and “Guy’s Ranch Kitchen” (for which Guy earned a Daytime Emmy-nomination for Outstanding Culinary Host) and many more.
A prolific chef, Fieri has opened over 63 restaurants around the world and at sea, from the Las Vegas strip to the Atlantic City boardwalk; from South Africa to Dubai; as well as authored six best-selling cookbooks.
In 2013, Fieri fulfilled a personal passion with the launch of Hunt & Ryde Winery in Sonoma County, named for his two sons, Hunter and Ryder. He continues to support numerous charities including his own “Cooking with Kids,” the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Best Buddies International. Fieri recently donated his time and efforts cooking for the first responders and displaced residents of the recent California fires.
