Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
- 39 Seasons
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, or Triple D, as host Guy Fieri sometimes calls the show, is a cooking show that is highly unique from the traditional "watch me cook" show. This 30-minute program takes the viewer across the country and into Canada to visit out of the ordinary restaurants serving delicious food from a non-traditional venue. Each restaurant visited is one that viewers and patrons have recommended to the program's host. Many venues are unexpected food treasures that are easily overlooked. Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives has taken viewers to the smallest of diners that seat 15 people and dives that are hole-in-the wall establishments serving elegant cuisine not found in the most expensive restaurants. During an episode, the host, Guy Fieri, introduces viewers to the restaurant owners, families, history and chef. Then, viewers are taken on a culinary journey into the restaurants kitchen where the chef creates his most popular dishes for Guy to sample. However, this cooking experience is not only relating a recipe where viewers are instructed to add a teaspoon of salt or a cup of flour. Each chef, with the help of the host, demonstrates their culinary talent through the showmanship of skills and the humor parlayed between host and chef. Amongst the cooking entertainment, a delicious creation erupts that makes viewer's mouths water. Throughout the entire 30 minutes, the audience is held captive by the host, the food and the stories revealed in every establishment the program uncovers. Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives is a modern, trendy cooking show that engages everyone in the restaurant and at home from beginning to end. However, anyone searching for a matter of fact, boring and demonstrative cooking program will have to look elsewhere. Triple D is a fun, lively, engaging, and informative experience that keeps viewers tuning in week after week. Not only can the program be watched on TV, the audience has the opportunity to bring the entire experience to a restaurant in their neighborhood.
