Beginning Friday, April 24
Plus, catch a special marathon of ‘DDD: A To Z’ on Saturday, as Guy goes on a delicious ‘Triple D’ adventure through alphabet
With restaurants closed and social distancing in place, Guy Fieri can't hit the road to visit some of his favorite joints on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.” So now, Guy is having some familiar faces of Flavortown come to his home kitchen on three special episodes of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: Takeout,” beginning on Friday, April 24 (9 p.m. ET/PT).
In each episode, Guy checks in with four past “Triple D” chefs from across the country via video-chat, to see how they are holding up, and how they have transformed their businesses to keep serving customers. Each chef has sent the full list of ingredients of their featured recipes straight to Guy's house and will guide him through each step to make the dish, just like when he is on the road and there in-person. But now, Guy will be virtually cooking along to prepare, plate, and taste each dynamite dish.
"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."
" ‘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," Guy said.
Throughout the episodes, some of the most memorable “Triple D” alum will teach Guy new recipes that bring international cuisines into viewers' own homes. From chicken tamales, to paella fritters, and to European-style dumplings, takeout has never tasted this good. Plus, barbecue burnt ends, chicken parmesan, and bangin' shrimp, these meals will leave fans craving more!
Don't miss the special “DDD: A to Z” marathon this Saturday, April 18 (1 p.m.), as Guy goes on a mouthwatering journey through the alphabet. From awesome Asian, to hangin' Hawaii style, to shut-the-front-door sandwiches, and to wings 'n things, every letter is full of funky flavor and fun.
