Ceviche with pico

Rick Gutierrez

Anthony Nunez/Fuse

1. What's one of your earliest childhood food memories?
Watching my mom cook on the stove and making tortillas, cutting bell peppers and onions

2. Which hipster food trend is the most annoying/overrated?
All food serves a function. I don't think there is anything that is overrated as long as you like it.

3. What's your ideal comfort food when you're having a bad day?
It's not food, man. It's chocolate. When I have a bad day, I could sit and eat a one-pound bar of Hershey's Chocolate with Almonds, and it makes my day so much better. I love it!

4. Any cuisine(s) that you haven't tried yet but really want to?
I have tried everything. That's the good thing about my job! When I was in the military, I went to a lot of different countries and tried their food. I don't think there is anything I haven't tried. We eat a lot of food everyday from different cultures, and you wouldn't even know it.

5. What dish would you cook/prepare for a potluck?
Pot roast. I make a mean-ass pot roast! With baked potatoes and fresh green beans and a salad.

6. What's your favorite meal of the day, and which food items must that meal include?
My favorite meal of the day is breakfast, and it's got to include eggs, bacon, toast, coffee and water. That's it. But the coffee is not there because I like it—it's there to make sure the rest of the stuff comes out!

7. If you could only drink one cocktail/alcoholic beverage for the rest of your life, which would it be?
Wine. Red wine. I like the reds. Any red wine.

8. What's the worst food you've ever eaten while on the road/touring?
Other than my ex-wife's? Once we went to place with "authentic" Mexican food, and it turned out to be VELVEETA cheese, corn tortillas with chili con carne on top...and I was very upset. It was horrible.

9. Favorite fast food joint to hit up on tour?
That has to be Whataburger.

10. Who's the best cook out of the Fluffy crew?
I am! I cook really well, and I love to cook.

G Reilly

1. What's one of your earliest childhood food memories?
Standing on a chair making pancakes while my dad supervised

2. Which hipster food trend is the most annoying/overrated?
Kale is most overrated and annoying. Eating kale is like the gym for your face. It's a workout.   

3. What's your ideal comfort food when you're having a bad day?
The $6 burger from Carl's Jr.

4. Any cuisine(s) that you haven't tried yet but really want to?
West African

5. What dish would you cook/prepare for a potluck?
Like most black people, I'd bring chips and throw in 10 bucks.

Breakfast, and it must include potatoes, home fries, or hash browns.

7. If you could only drink one cocktail/alcoholic beverage for the rest of your life, which would it be?
Patron Silver because I could function the next day!

Photo of the day

NEW YORK - DECEMBER 14: Zendaya, Hugh Jackman, James Corden, and Zac Efron perform in Crosswalk The Musical in New York City

Dec. 15: ‘The Greatest Showman’ Take Over NYC

Zendaya, Zac Efron and Hugh Jackman drop by New York City to take part in James Corden’s Crosswalk the Musical series, and it went as hilariously chaotic as you think. The cast of the upcoming film ‘The Greatest Showman’ perform various tunes from Broadway classics like ‘Guys and Dolls,’ ‘On the Town,’ and ‘Fame’ in the middle of the busy streets of NYC. The three actors even performed a number from their new movie, and despite the traffic and honking cars we think they did pretty well!
