Guy Fieri Spotlights Hawaii Food and Culture

Guy Fieri is, without doubt, a big Hawaii aficionado, and its food, especially! People certainly resonate with Guy’s take. You, too, may want to take this TV journey with Guy later in August.

The show is named “Guy: Hawaiian Style.” It will be released on August 28, so mark your calendar. Guy and his family will be spending nearly three weeks on the Big Island, Oahu, and Maui. He will be accompanied by his wife Lori and two sons (Hunter and Ryder), as well as his nephew Jules, for a deep dive into Hawaii’s food and culture. Celebrity guests are also set to appear, but names have thus far not been released. The photo above may hint at some possibilities, though. A few years ago, when Guy was on Maui, he met with Mick Fleetwood and Sammy Hagar.

You can expect a big serving of traditional Hawaii food favorites, like poke, which we’ve seen him enjoying here before, as well as shave ice and other delicacies.

They will also be fishing for their own food and enjoying adrenaline-pumping fun, including surfing with some legendary help.

Guy says in the trailer, “Are you ready to see Hawaii in a way you’ve never seen before? We are going off the grid, off the beaten path.”

In addition to food, also expect to get a healthier serving of Hawaiian culture, traditions, and celebrations.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see Guy taking up at least partial residence here in Hawaii in the future. Money will be no problem since the uber-famous celebrity chef just signed a 3-year Discovery Network deal that is said to be worth $80 million.

Discovery said, “The new deal spans three years and includes bringing audiences more of Fieri’s Primetime Emmy-nominated series “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” as well as more episodes of fan-favorites, “Guy’s Grocery Games” and his most recent ratings success, “Tournament of Champions,” along with new projects that Guy is already plotting out for both Food Network as well as for the newly launched discovery+ streamer.”

Guy is a renowned chef and restaurateur, New York Times best-selling author, and an Emmy Award winner. He was recently honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

You can catch the show starting August 28 on Discovery Plus. And watch the trailer below.

  1. Thanks for the information will be looking forward to the show can hardly wait to come back to the islands for a visit

  2. Aside from Poke, “Hawaiian” food is pretty disgusting and boring. Most of the good food I’ve had in Hawaii was from some other culture… like maybe sushi… or Thai. The highlights of “Hawaiian” food are poi and spam and mac salad… so that’s gonna be a pretty short TV episode.

    1. Dude…Huli Huli Chicken, Malasadas, Kona coffee, all things pineapple, macadamias, lilikoi, and above all, an entire pig buried on the beach with hot stones until it turnes into slow-cooked pulled pork goodness…

      …have you really actually been to HI? The food on Hawaii is AMAZING!

  3. Nice show, the guy makes a bunch of money, God bless him, but he wrecks everyplace he goes to. I can’t get in to eat at some of my favorite spots anymore because of the overwhelming surge he creates that can last for years. Oh well…

    1. Sorry to say but years ago he showcased a burger place in our small CA beach town. People line up everyday before opening, haven’t been since the show. It’s a burger place people! Used to be a nice place to walk to, no more.

  4. This comment is a question about another topic altogether, but prompted by the recognition that Fieri’s show will attract more tourists to Hawaii. Our family has been traveling to Hawaii almost every year for the past 12 years. We have made friends on the Big Island, and these friends include some native Hawaiians. One friend has been posting increasingly anti-tourist messages on social media (usually reposting someone else’s). A recent repost was of this one:
    When we were in Hawaii in July, we felt welcomed, but is there increasing anti-tourism sentiment there? Is it just a perception because I’m now more connected with some kanaka maoli and I’m just now seeing what’s always been there? Some of what I see actually sounds threatening.

    1. We just landed in Oahu, yesterday Aug 10; everyone has been kind & welcoming. We’re honored & grateful to be hear. Mahalo!
