David Guas is the host of Travel Channel's reality series "American Grilled."

David Guas is the chef and owner of Bayou Bakery, Coffee Bar & Eatery, a southern style eatery in Arlington, Virginia, that is a nostalgic tribute to his New Orleans hometown featuring southern comfort fare and his signature desserts. His Louisiana country cooking shines in savory Breakfast Biscuits, Louisiana Gumbo, Boudin, Red Beans & Rice, Pimento Cheese and his Muff-a-Lotta, which was named one of the top 20 "Best Sandwiches in the U.S." by Food & Wine in 2012.

Prior to launching his eatery, Guas was continuously recognized nationally as an accomplished pastry chef: in 2004, he won the title of Pastry Chef of the Year from the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington; Bon Appétit magazine named him one of eight "Dessert Stars" in the country; and The Washington Post's restaurant critic wrote of his work, "I have yet to find a single dessert I can say no to."

Guas' cookbook, "DamGoodSweet — Desserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth, New Orleans Style" was a James Beard Award finalist and was named one of Food & Wine's "Best New Dessert Cookbooks." His culinary talents have been lauded in The Washington Post and The New York Times as well as in Garden & Gun, Southern Living, O' Oprah and Bon Appétit magazines.

This hunting, fishing, Harley-riding chef, and father of two sons, is a regular on "The Today Show" and is a long-term member of Southern Foodways Alliance; Slow Food USA; Share Our Strength; board member of the Southern Food & Beverage Museum; the U.S. State Department Diplomatic Culinary Initiative; Best Buddies; and is a founding member of District Hogs, a group of DC-area restaurant professionals who ride their motorcycles for fun, food, and charity.
