Guy Fieri was actually born Guy Ferry on the 22nd January 1968 but changed his name later in his life to honour his paternal grandfather, who emigrated from Italy. He is an American restauranteur, author and television chef who owns a string of restaurants in California, as well as licensing others in New York and Las Vegas.

He continued to open restaurants across America after his first in 1996 and the majority opened to acclaim with the notable exception of the very public criticism of his New York restaurant Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar.

In the mid-2000s, Fieri’s focus turned to television, winning a six-episode series on the Food Network. He continued to work with the Food Network, releasing new series and eventually became the face of the network, bringing a new style to the network and drawing an audience of primarily male viewers, that they had historically struggled with in the past.

A widely respected chef and presenter, we have collected some of Fieri’s most inspirational and interesting quotes to provide an insight into the man who is the face of food on Americas Food Network.
