Guy Fieri may be dealing with quarantine in the same way as the rest of us, but the Food Network isn’t going to let that stop new episodes from coming out. In fact, three new episodes of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” are about to hit the air. They will revisit some of the local chefs that were his favorite by tying in through video chat. The goal is to see how they are doing now that the coronavirus is an issue.
The special episodes will be known as “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: Takeout.” You can expect the first of them to premiere on April 24, 2020 and they will continue for the 2 Fridays that follow up until May 8, 2020. Every episode is going to feature four chefs that had a visit from Fieri in the past. A four-ingredient list for a specific recipe will be offered and he will be remotely guided through the process of preparing it. Some of the dishes that are sure to be featured include chicken tamales, paella fritters, European-style dumplings, BBQ burnt ends, chicken parmesan and “bangin’ shrimp,” according to The Wrap.
“Triple D has always been about hittin’ the road and celebrating the hard workin’ folks of the restaurant business. And while the restaurants are partially closed and the Camaro is parked, DDD: Takeout is here to show you how your favorite chefs are still cookin’ it up to keep people fed, support their communities, their families, and their employees,” Fieri said.
“We are continuing to cook up creative programming ideas that entertain our viewers during these unprecedented times,” said Courtney White, president of Food Network. “Diner, Drive-Ins, and Dives is a fan-favorite, and we are thrilled to be able to still deliver it to our audience in unique ways from special DDD: A to Z marathons to new DDD: Takeout episodes self-shot by Guy at home.”
In addition, a marathon of Triple D episodes will be re-airing on the Food Network on Saturday, April 18 beginning at 1:00 PM Eastern time. The episodes are known as “DDD: A to Z” and will show Fieri working his way through an alphabetical list of cuisine, from Asian to Hawaiian and beyond.SKM: below-content placeholder
