Guy Fieri isn't exactly known for being straight-edge or traditional. From his spiky hair and flaming bowling t-shirt to his outrageously creative recipes, he's always done things his own way. This trend continues when it comes to holiday meals, where Guy Fieri doesn't stick to the classics. This is what you can expect on Guy Fieri's Christmas holiday table.
Saturday Night Live did a whole a skit about Guy Fieri's Christmas feast, imagining that he must serve a dinner of extravagant, creative dishes. The SNL sketch by Bobby Moynihan, Guy Fieri's Full Throttle Christmas Special, portrayed Fieri eating dishes like Bud Lime gazpacho and stuffing a stocking with a Teddy Graham crust and 20-layer bean dip.
Guy Fieri's Christmas Dishes
Although this isn't how Fieri celebrates the holiday season in real life, the Food Network star's Christmas dinner is far from traditional. As Fieri explains, "On Christmas, here in NorCal, we've always gotta have our Dungeness crab, which is in season. We always do some sort of pasta dish as well -- linguine vongole shows up a lot because Ryder is a machine when it comes to his clams."
Celebrity chef Guy Fieri says that his family also skips the tradition of leaving cookies for Santa, joking to Eater that "the only thing the big man can expect at the bottom of the chimney is a bunch of slobbering dogs who just ate his cookies." However, the mayor of Flavortown does have a go-to Christmas cookie recipe, The Spiciest Gingerbread Cookies Ever.
The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives star's son, Ryder, was born on New Year's Eve, so he says that this time of year is special for that reason along with the holidays. When asked about the best Christmas gift he's ever gotten, he references the Christmas when his son was born, saying "that's a pretty real-deal Christmas gift, wouldn't you say?
Although the restaurateur hasn't shared how he cooks his crab for the holidays, he does have a delicious Nor Cal Cioppino recipe that features Dungeness crab, along with a tasty crab linguini recipe. Try them out to celebrate the holidays just like Guy Fieri!
