Texas Featured in Guy Fieri's New Food Network Show, 'Guy's Family Road Trip'

Guy Fieri is going to Texas. In his new show Guy's Family Road Trip, the supermarket loving super chef hits the road with his family to explore family food and tradition. In the series, Guy, his wife Lori, and his sons Hunter and Ryder load up their RV and hit the road. Adventure episodes include helicopter tours in the Grand Canyon, mountain biking in Lake Tahoe and rafting down the Colorado Rapids.

Since Guy is involved, you know there will be pitstops along the way for some good food. And that means Texas.

"I'm excited to hit the open road for the ultimate RV trip," said Guy Fieri. "With years of experience seeking out the country's funkiest joints, I can't wait to dig into America's signature dishes and destinations with my family. The best part is that I get to bring the viewers along for the ride!"

The family makes a stop at the Alamo to see the sites and then heads up a special dinner for troops in San Antonio. The episode titled, "Remember the Lone Star State" also includes a visit from another celebrity chef, Robert Irvine.

The two met up at Lackland Air Force Base and cooked a feast as a small way to thank the troops for their service. How did the troops say thanks back? Members of the Special Forces invite guy and his son Hunter to skydive with them.

The trip ends at King Ranch where Fieri and family hang with some local cowboys and join in a cowboy cookout of smoked nilgai antelope.

As Courtney White, SVP Programming, Scripps Network Interactive said,

"Guy's Family Road Trip has all the ingredients for the perfect vacation - family, food and fun. With Guy at the wheel, audiences know they can expect a delicious journey. This summer, with his family along for the ride, he'll lead the way to some of the most mouthwatering meals and iconic locations across the country offering up action and adventure from coast to coast."

They also check out American ingenuity at the Hoover Dam, before heading to Guy's restaurant in Nevada for traditional Mexican mole and homemade salsa.

Next, things heat up in Flagstaff, Arizona at the local Chile Festival with spicy red and green chiles. But not to worry, because a big glass of mead brewed with local wildflower honey helps to cool things off.
