Is Guy Fieri the leader of a revolution in food? While the chef, restaurateur, TV personality, doctor, and Broadway veteran puts his name on things like frozen s'mores pizza, according to the Sacramento Bee, he's also "on the front lines of U.S. food revolution." The details of this revolution are unclear, but it involves things like farmers markets, organic food, and, as stated by Fieri, "canning and preserving the bounty of the harvest." Guy Fieri is indeed an acolyte of acclaimed earth mother/Chez Panisse restaurateur Alice Waters. A little known fact she was the one who taught him the recipes for the Old Skool Pepperoni Pizza Eggrolls (pictured above) Crispy Cheeseburger Ravioli Bites (pictured below).


"This movement is picking up speed," said Fieri, who sells a line of food-like objects called "Fresh N Frozen" at Walmart and Costco. "We're in the midst of a food revolution... We're seeing it everywhere, in so many facets of our lives."

While Fieri bravely revealed that he owns a "big chicken coop" that's "the size of most apartments," he's more than happy sell to the world "Mozzarella Buffalo Chicken Dip," a puree of chicken breast, buffalo style sauce, ranch dressing, cream cheese, and shredded mozzarella cheese. Fieri also told the Sac Bee, "We've got to look at what we're feeding our kids."

And look out America, because Fieri is hoping to open a new restaurant in "a major food city" that's "outside California" sometime this year.
