Food Diary: Brian Guido



Brian “Guido” Guido is a man enamored of meat (see picture above). Along with Sacramento News & Review editor Nick Miller he is the co-creator of the rip-roaring Sacramento Baconfest.  So you could definitely say he’s done a service for the entire city.

He’s married to food writer and Undercover Caterer blogger Sarah Singleton (ooh she has a pic of June’s macaroni salad up at the top of the homepage right now). Between the two of them the level of delicious food in their period-correct 60s-era home must be off the charts.  Here’s what he ate for a week:
