Cooking through Julia Child's cookbook may have been a daunting task (That hollandaise! The lobster!), but here's another serious contender for a book-turned-movie: The Gwynedd/Guy Project.
A blogger, presumably Gwynedd, has decided to cook through Guy Fieri's cookbook Guy Fieri Food: Cookin’ It. Livin’ It. Lovin’ It. Why? "In the end, I just want us all to feel closer to Guy Fieri. To a point that it’s sweaty and breathy and uncomfortable," she writes.
So far, she's done the Garlic-Onion Tortilla Stack, the Cheddar Trans-Porter Soup, and also the No Can Beato This Taquito. And while the Gwynedd calls taquitos "crunchalicious," she does have to make a couple changes to make cooking feasible. "I’m adjusting in advance now. Growing to understand Guy. In all his glorious complexity," she wrote in the latest post.
Unfortunately, the blog lacks the resolve Julie/Julia Project had; Gwynedd wrote that she'll only keep this up until she gets bored with it. Too bad! We were looking forward to at least a year of learning about Guy Fieri's recipes (maybe we'll cook along). But blogger Gwynedd does a great job of defending the guy: "He wears his sunglasses backward instead of just taking them off and he f*cking loves Smash Mouth. Chunky jewelry, Saturday shirts… these are all things we’re OK with."
