He's the chef you love to watch on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," or the chef you love to hate. We're talking about Guy Fieri, the Food Network star and restaurant critic whipping boy, and he's coming to Sacramento. Fieri will host a book signing on June 19 his Johnny Garlic's restaurant on 2243 Arden Way. He'll be promoting the latest edition of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: The Funky Finds in Flavortown," a New York Times best-seller that includes Fieri's favorite restaurant finds and recipes, too.
Fieri's left a spiky-haired imprint in Sacramento for years. He's an alum of American River College's culinary arts program and operates two Johnny Garlic's in the area - the other located at 10505 Fairway Dr. in Roseville. He's also featured such local spots as the Golden Bear, Dad's Kitchen, Jamie's Broadway Grille and others on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives."
Fieri's book signing starts at 5 p.m. on June 19. Wraparound sunglasses and sweatbands not included. For more information: (916) 927-8399.
