Cookbook Author Hits Aisles in ‘Guy’s Grocery Games’

Food Network celebrity chef Guy Fieri is exactly what he appears to be according to Emily Paster, River Forest resident, cookbook author and contestant on a recently aired episode of Grocery games for boys. The shopping and cooking game show has aired for 30 seasons and pits home cooks against each other in quick rounds designed to test their creativity and culinary prowess to a panel of judges.

“There’s nothing fake about Guy Fieri,” Paster said of the Food Network star who also hosts Diners Drive-Ins and Dives. “I really appreciate how he supports small businesses through his work and I admire that he has done this for himself.”

Known for writing books covering global Jewish cuisine, Paster found her way to Grocery games for boys through a casting company that had been considering her for another cooking show on the Food Network years earlier.
