Food Tour to Hit Walton Arts Center’s Art of Wine Festival
Northwest Arkansas (March 28, 2011) — As part of the 11th Annual Art of Wine Festival, Walton Arts Center announces celebrity chef, restaurateur, best-selling author and TV personality Guy Fieri to arrive in Walker Hall on Wednesday, June 1 at 7pm. The Guy Fieri Food Show presented by the National Pork Board will mix the best elements of a live cooking show, the fun of a variety revue, and the non-stop adrenaline rush of a rock concert. Tickets for the Guy Fieri Food Tour will go on sale on Tuesday, Mar. 29 at 9am and range from $35 to $49. A limited number of "Kulinary Krew" Package will be available for $150. The "Kulinary Krew" Package includes: prime orchestra seating; tour laminate; a copy of Guy Fieri Food; a pre-show meet and greet with Fieri and more. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Walton Arts Center Box Office at 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org.
All proceeds from the Art of Wine support Walton Arts Center’s education programs.
Host of NBC’s “Minute to Win It” and Three Hit Food Network Shows to Mix Food, Fun & Rock n' Roll on Stage Nightly, Fieri will take center stage with an unscripted and wildly entertaining performance — complete with interactive cooking stations, secret tips and dishes from his forthcoming cookbook (Guy Fieri Food, due May 3rd), as well as behind-the-scenes stories from the road, and much more.
Australia-based flair bartender Hayden "Woody" Wood, entertainer and author of The Liquid Kitchen, will serve as the show’s opening act and onstage mixologist. L.A.'s DJ Cobra will spin the show’s soundtrack from the comfort of his wild, orange fur-covered DJ booth, starting with the customary introduction of Fieri to the rocking theme of Motley Crue's “Kick Start My Heart.”
A best-selling author and restaurateur, Fieri is best known as the host of NBC’s hit primetime game show Minute to Win It. He also appears on four popular shows on the Food Network, including Guy's Big Bite; as well as Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, where he travels across the country to find the most original and delicious food that America has to offer; the special series Tailgate Warriors; and as a guest judge on Next Food Network Star.
In 2008, Fieri released his first book, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: An All-American Road Trip…with Recipes! In its first week, it landed on the New York Times Best Sellers List. In 2009, he followed with a second “Diners” book, which also hit the Best Sellers List. On the Guy Fieri Food Tour, Fieri will take the recipes from the page to the stage and feature preparation of key dishes from his upcoming cookbook Guy Fieri Food (William Morrow, an imprint of Harper Collins).
