Scripps Networks Interactive-owned net Travel Channel has ordered two jet-setting specials set to feature Guy’s Big Bite personality Guy Fieri.
Guy & Hunter’s European Vacation will follow the Food Network star and his eldest son Hunter as they enjoy a month-long journey across Europe to explore a new world of culture and cuisine.
The father-and-son duo will meet people involved in traditional food preparation techniques, from authentic gyro preparation in Greece and gelato-making in Italy to preparing fish ‘n’ chips in England and making croissants in France.
The special will provide a behind-the-scenes look as Fieri – accompanied by his wife Lori, his parents Jim and Penny and his production crew – explores the blossoming restaurant scene in Havana, Cuba. It will also follow the restaurateur as he pays homage to Cuba’s most famous chef by cooking his trademark coffee lobster and a regional pork plate, eating Russian ravioli and chicken Kiev at a Soviet-era spot, as well as indulging in such Cuban specialties as drunk chicken and pork with plantains.
Travel Channel will premiere Guy & Hunter’s European Vacation on July 5 at 11 p.m. EST/PST, while Guy Fieri’s Cuban Adventure is slated to air on August 2 at 11 p.m. EST/PST.
