I admit it. I am a lover of food. My waistline shows it. I'm not a connoisseur or credentialed critic and I'm perhaps not even to the level of  foodie. However, if my love of enjoying delicious food, cooking and watching the Food Network way too much is an indicator, I'm well on my way gourmand glory.

With a little time on my hands between fresh episodes of 'Diners, Drive-In's and Dives' and while my salmon smokes, I've compiled a list of the 11 Times the Food Network's hit series featuring Guy Fieri has visited Eastern Washington. So far, nothing in Yakima (and we'll have to see about changing that - I can think of 5 or 6 places that rate a visit) but several stops in the Tri Cities and Spokane - in addition to numerous episodes from the 'left coast'.
