Guy Fieri is celebrating the bounty of Sonoma County with Chef Justin Wangler. Their twists on classic burgers, fries and shakes lead to a menu of black and blue burgers stuffed with blue cheese and served with red wine fries and a tomato salad.

Sunday 11a|10c

Daphne's got a special game-day menu that is sure to win over the crowd without stressing out the cook! She kicks off the party with her signature guacamole and fried wonton chips, and then it's butter burger sliders with two sauces: sweet Russian and arugula pesto. Plus, she whips up a spicy cabbage salad on the side. And Daphne's got a special crowd-pleasing cocktail, her kick-a-rita.

When chefs join forces with their families, Guy's constantly turning the tables, with kids picking the dishes and chefs taking a timeout from cooking. Four families raise the bar on breakfast by making a brunch containing raisins and then a comfort meal on a very uncomfortable budget. Then, the finalists must prepare a five-star dinner after they swap kitchens and groceries. One family will go on a Triple G shopping spree worth up to $20,000!

Sunday 8|7c

This week the recruits huddle up to tackle game-day dishes as they create deep-fried fan favorites for Chefs Anne and Tyler. Will they make crowd-pleasing dishes or be defeated by the fryer? After the big game, the recruits try not to lose their noodles when they break down a raw squid to make squid ink pasta with calamari.

Sunday 9|8c

In this special big-game episode, two chefs have to wear tailgates on their backs. Then, two chefs have to cook in bleachers. Finally, one chef has to make brownies while kneeling.

When the sun goes down at Duff Goldman's bakery, it's time to hang loose: It's a Big Island battle between decorator darling Liz Marek and nutty artist Kim Simons in a Hawaiian-themed luau challenge.

Geof Manthorne and Catherine McCord join the party and help Duff name the winning cake.
