Summer grillers in search of big, bold and inspired pork dishes can look to the “culinary rock star” himself, Guy Fieri. With the launch of a 16 city interactive tour, Fieri fans can look forward to tips from the master to put to good use on their own grills.

Between May 17 and June 7, the ‘Guy Fieri Food Show,’ sponsored by the National Pork Board, will feature an interactive culinary event where attendees will enjoy a live cooking demonstration. With Fieri’s high-energy attitude, audiences will walk away with recipes, tools and tips and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“As a huge Pal-of-Pork, I’m proud that the National Pork Board has signed on to sponsor my second nationwide tour,” Fieri said. “Having the ‘power of the pig’ fueling this tour guarantees that it will be unlike anything fans have seen before!”

As his culinary star has risen, Fieri’s name has become almost synonymous with pork.  ”We love to see how Guy’s incredible creativity comes to life with pork – we couldn’t ask for a more enthusiastic partner,” said Traci Rodemeyer, director of pork information for the National Pork Board. “America’s pork producers are so excited to help Guy share this passion with the entire country this summer.”

If you’re not able to catch Fieri in person, his new cookbook, Guy Fieri Food: Cookin’ It, Livin’ It, Lovin’ It offers readers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the man behind the food. Fieri has always been adventurous when it comes to food, and his cookbook is full of new recipes, including:

  • Summer Grilled Pork – Featuring boneless pork chops and bacon, it’s “pork on pork,” rolled and stuffed with big flavors and basted with a rockin’ honey, beer and mustard glaze.
  • Watermelon Pork Tacos – An unexpected pairing of juicy watermelon and lean pork tenderloin, these fresh summertime tacos come together in romaine lettuce “shells.”
  • Pork Blade Steak Piccata – With all the favorite flavors of its famous Italian namesake, Fieri shows off pork’s versatility in this reinvented masterpiece for the grill.
