Giuseppe's In the News
By Susie Timm, Chief Operating Foodie
With his "culinary gansta" chef skull tattoo, signature bleached blonde locks and bowling shirts, Guy Fieri has rapidly become a foodie icon that represents the All-American chef.
I have been watching Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and Guys Big Bite on the Food Network since both shows began airing. To say I am a fan is an understatement. Theres just something about Guy Fieri...
After 9 hours of Guy Fieri and Triple D episodes, we saw many of the Arizona featured restaurants and of course, I cannot wait to try every single one!
Giuseppe's proudly displays a banner that boasts their Triple D appearance. So, now on a Triple D Arizona roll, I called up Richard Bock from Giuseppes on 28th and we tried it out Saturday night. I had pork shank osso bucco. It was heavenly. The very best I have ever had. One of the best things I have ever tasted.
Heaven. Aka Pork Shank Osso Bucco.
Jay tried the pasta Bolognese and Eric had meat lasagna. All completely different yet all stunning flavors. The tiramisu was also light, creamy and one of the most delicious I have ever had.
About halfway through our dinner, I finally figured it out. Guy Fieri, the restaurants on his show and the chefs he features are just quite simply: real.
Susie, Richard, and Jay
Theres not a hint of pretense. Most likely if you show up to 99% of the places on his show, you will meet the person who was featured in the flesh.
Like the Collineses who work the line and sample their foods to hungry customers with a smile. Or Bock who takes names down on a clipboard with a sharpie, holds the door for waiting foodies, refills waters and generally makes comical wise cracks to regulars and newbies alike.
Just real. Normal, kind and extremely passionate people.
"Some of the chefs in this town cook how they think people want to eat, I cook from my experiences. I cook from my heart," said Bock.
It's this attitude that earns these chefs the well-deserved recognition they get from Fieri and Food Network.
