What a blast we had with Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives!

We can't begin to describe the momentum we experienced for two intense days of filming.  The Triple-D film crew: Mike Morris (Producer), Anthony Rodriguez (Camera), David Canada (Sound), Ryan Larson, and Ron Gabaldon (Production Assistants) - an amazing group of guys.  Their expertise and skill transitioned us through with ease.

As stated in an interview with Guy Fieri, October of 2010 "National Flavor," Guy follows his vision and brings viewers Diner's, Drive-Ins and Dives - episodes showing real food cooked by real people.  To Guy it's more than just food.  He beleives that through personal touch people create an attitude when they cook for family and community.  This influences the food.

Thank you for steering many our way.  We are excited and proud to be part of your Triple-D Family.  A special thanks goes out to Jeff Mandell, (Location Researcher), who orchestrated the process that led to the product - you rock!   

Gratefully yours,
Jose

 

Appearance of Jose’s Real Cuban Food on cable network is recipe to celebrate

BRADENTON -- Damon Fowler’s Sugar Shack Mondays at Aces Live in Bradenton has been a popular attraction for blues enthusiasts statewide since its inception at the start of the year.

This week’s edition proved extra special.

The international touring and Blind Pig recording artist from Bradenton Beach joined forces with one of his favorite restaurants.

It resulted in a packed-house viewing party featuring Jose’s Real Cuban Food’s appearance on the hit road show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” on Food Network.

To accommodate the larger crowd, owner Jose Baserva and his famous food moved across the street to Aces Live.

After the Damon Fowler Group performed from 8 p.m. until just before 9 p.m., all eyes were on the numerous television screens that adorn the venue’s ancient wood walls.

Wild-haired host Guy Fieri dined on Baserva’s picadillo, paella and boliche, raving about each dish.

“This is absolutely surreal,” Baserva said, moments after the episode aired.

Throngs of Baserva’s family and longtime customers rushed to hug and congratulate the restaurant owner, who was seated next to his wife, Darlene.

Fowler’s power trio then returned to the stage to elate the audience with more original, rollicking blues and Americana songs goosed with a few choice covers.

“I’m a fan of Jose’s and it was great we were able to partner with him tonight,” Fowler said.

A second viewing party featuring Jose’s famed Cuban sandwiches will take place at Aces Live at noon today.

The episode airs again on Food Network at 9 p.m. Sept. 30.

“This is the second best day ever. The only one better is when I married my wife,” Baserva said.
