What to Watch: Father’s Day Celebrations, and Dueling Dads on Guy’s Grocery Games
Celebrate the dads in your life this weekend with ideas from your favorite Food Network chefs. First up, Ree Drummond’s dad is retiring after 45 years in medicine, so she’s making him a dinner of all his favorite foods, including Burgundy Beef Stew and Mini Chocolate-Cherry Bundt Cakes. Then on Farmhouse Rules, Nancy and her grandkids are putting on a special Father’s Day putt-putt golf event, featuring a decadent surf-and-turf dinner for the whole family. After, Valerie Bertinelli is cooking up a hearty meal for the men in her life with some new recipes, including Chipotle Cheeseburgers with homemade barbecue sauce and her Mom’s Onion Rings.
Then on Sunday, tune in as four dads duke it out on Guy’s Grocery Games as they compete for the chance to bring home $20,000. To win big they’ll need to decipher grocery lists made up of emoji symbols and putt for their protein in a round of Grocery Golf. After, the finalists on Food Network Star work to create a NASCAR-worthy tailgate meal, and guest judges Katie Lee and Chef Robert Irvine will help decide who gets sent home.

Valerie Bertinelli loves her many family traditions, but it's never too late to start a new one! To honor some of the special men in her life — her son Wolf, husband Tom and brother Patrick — Valerie creates new family favorites: Chipotle Cheeseburgers with homemade barbecue sauce, Spinach and Strawberry Salad topped with a Warm Bacon Vinaigrette, and her Mom's Onion Rings served with a refreshing Ginger Beer Lime Rickey.
Dads are ready to duke it out in the GGG kitchen, but they aren't all smiley faces when they have to decipher a grocery list made up of emoji symbols to make their guilty pleasure. Next, fathers have to make a family favorite using only foods whose price begins with a 2. Finally, the dads face off in a game of Grocery Golf to create a Sunday supper that could net one of them up to $20,000!
Chef Robert Irvine shows his love of NASCAR and the inevitable tailgating that comes along with it as he challenges the finalists to create a dish worthy of a world-class tailgate party! Then, Robert and fellow guest judge Katie Lee help Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby Flay decide who is sent home.
