The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (IPCC) and Pueblo Harvest Cafe in Albuquerque, N.M. will play a starring role alongside world-famous chef Guy Fieri on the Food Network’s all-new show, Guy’s Family Road Trip, debuting next week.
The show follows Guy Fieri accompanied by his wife and two sons as they drive an RV from their California home to the Florida coast, stopping along the way to cook and eat distinctive regional cuisines.
Guy Fieri, family and crew spent a full afternoon at the IPCC in June joining Executive Chef David Ruiz in the Pueblo Harvest Cafe’s kitchen to prepare Tewa Tacos.
The Season 1, Episode 2, episode is titled Wild West Canyons and Cookouts, and takes the Fieri family from a Flagstaff farmer’s market along Route 66 to Albuquerque, where they spent the afternoon experiencing Pueblo hospitality at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.
According to the official episode description, they came “to explore America’s most traditional food, the so-called Three Sisters crops, corn, beans and squash, grown by the Native Americans of the Southwest.”
Guy Fieri and his family were met by Museum Director Monique Fragua (Jemez Pueblo), who welcomed them to the Pueblo people’s homeland and answered their questions about Pueblo history and culture. The foursome then enjoyed a dance by the Acoma Dance Group, posing with them for a souvenir photo afterward.
Cultural Education Specialist Bettina Sandoval (Taos Pueblo) gave the family a tour of the IPCC’s Resilience Garden, where staff and volunteers cultivate indigenous plants, herbs and berries using traditional techniques.
