Have you ever created something new with a team? It's a special thing.
Here, a mini-reunion with some of the original #GGG judges from the pilot season. I remember vividly that first day showing up to set, which at the time was in a small Los Angeles grocery store we took over for filming. I settled into the judging table with @jettila and @chefbeaumac. And I had the time of my life. The show was smart, the challenges hard, but also fun and practical and like real life, and the judges all felt like my new best friends. Days 2 and 3 and 4 confirmed that this production team was special. Throughout those first 13 episodes, working with new besties like @_troyjohnson and @weelicious -- it felt like we were blessed to be part of this amazing family creating something unique. As with anything new, you wonder what it will become. Will the audience love it as much as you do? Will the celebration of food come through the screen?
16 seasons later, and still going strong! Today, as we film the last episode of this season, I look around at a team that is filled with folks who were there from day 1. This is a loyal family here.
Glad to play a small part in this creation -- making something where before there wasn't. Thank you @guyfieri and @foodnetwork for doing this, and for letting me tag along. ~
