The INSIDER Summary:
- In a recent interview, "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" star Guy Fieri admitted that his famous Donkey Sauce is just aioli.
- "If we call it aioli, does that make it sexier?" he admitted to Thrillist.
- In the interview, he also vaguely clapped back after a mention of his alleged feud with Anthony Bourdain.
When you picture Guy Fieri, you probably think of three things: bleach-blonde frosted tips, greasy food, and Donkey Sauce.
The "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" host is probably as famous for his mysterious sauce, which his restaurants pour on almost everything, as he is for his "dude" TV hosting style. But now we know exactly what that Donkey Sauce is thanks to a revealing interview with Thrillist: aioli.
That's right: Fieri's famous culinary contribution is a riff off of the mayo-like dressing made with garlic and olive oil.
"If we called it aioli, does that make it sexier? It's aioli," he said. "I called it Donkey Sauce because you have to make fun of it. It's a quintessential ingredient in so many aspects of food, yet probably not the most beneficial except for flavor."
In the same interview, Fieri was also asked about his alleged feud with TV chef Anthony Bourdain:
"Everybody has an opinion," he said. "If you get thrown off by the fact that I have bleach-blonde hair and tattoos, and listen to rock and roll...then you really don't know me well enough to tell me to do anything or really have a position that you should be making an opinion about me.
