Food Network Specials

Chefography: Guy Fieri

With multiple series and specials on Food Network, a New York Times best-selling book and millions of fans, Guy Fieri is on top of the world. But the ten-year old who just wanted to cook dinner for his family had no idea where his passion would lead him. From starting a pretzel cart business in fifth grade to running restaurants in his early twenties, it was clear that food was a driving force in Guy's life, but that was just the beginning. In 2005, he was picked as a finalist on the competition series "Next Food Network Star," and a new chapter began. Viewers fell in love with his infectious personality, and he won the competition, as well as his own cooking show, "Guy's Big Bite." Other successful series, like "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" and "Ultimate Recipe Showdown" soon followed, and Guy's status as culinary superstar was secured. (Episode: CHSP17)
