NEW YORK (June 28, 2016) - Food Network personality Guy Fieri is exploring some of the world's most exciting and fascinating places in two specials for Travel Channel this summer. The first special, "Guy & Hunter's European Vacation," premieres on Tuesday, July 5 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT andfollows the chef and his eldest son, Hunter, on the ultimate food-filled European expedition. In "Guy Fieri's Cuban Adventure," premiering on Tuesday, August 2 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, Guy embarks on a legendary adventure in one of the most captivating cultural destinations in the world.
We've seen Guy's son, Hunter, grow up on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" and "Guy's Big Bite," and now, after high school graduation, he and Guy are taking a month-long trek through Europe to dive into a new world of culture and cuisine in "Guy & Hunter's European Vacation." From authentic gyro preparation in Greece to the intricate croissant-making process in France, they meet the passionate people carrying on these traditional techniques. Whether it's making gelato or fish 'n' chips, Hunter is put to work as the duo eats their way from Italy to Germany and England to Spain, while also sharing amazing meals with family and friends. There's no shortage of adventure on the trip, with lobster fishing, sheep milking, glass blowing and even a little lederhosen fashion show.
Then, Guy takes his hit Food Network series, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," on an historic trip to Havana, Cuba, and Travel Channel tags along for a behind-the-scenes special, "Guy Fieri's Cuban Adventure." Joined by his production crew, his wife, Lori, and his parents, Jim and Penny, Guy explores the emerging restaurant scene in Cuba's capital city. He pays homage to Cuba's most famous chef and cooks his trademark coffee lobster and a regional pork plate. Guy also visits a Soviet-era spot serving authentic Russian ravioli and rich chicken Kiev and spends time at a cigar-lovers' haven that serves specialties like drunk chicken and pork with plantains.
