Last November, celebrity chef Guy Fieri of the Food Network show Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives, came to Chico to cook Thanksgiving dinner for evacuees and responders. After serving some 75-hundred pounds of turkey, he went around town and sampled some of the city’s dining options.

He liked what he saw-and tasted-so much that this week he came back to tape an entire episode of his show -- dedicated to Chico. Reporter Christal Smith grabbed a few moments with him as he taped a segment at Sin of Cortez.
