Tuesday Stir

By Kyle O'Brien 

-When Ryan Fey left his L.A. agency, Omelet, in 2017, he pivoted from chief brand officer to “Grill Dad,” landing a show on the Food Network with friend and colleague Mark Anderson as a couple of grilling buddies. Since then, the two have carved out a niche in the food world and have now written a cookbook, The Best Grilling Cookbook Ever Written by Two Idiots (The Grill Dads). The book will be released today and is available on Amazon. Mark and Fey, as they go by professionally, are on a press tour for the book. Check them out on the Today Show on June 9, as well as on Instagram @thegrilldads.
