Perhaps one of the most iconic food personalities of the last ten years -- it's easy to see how Guy Fieri managed to captivate an audience.

Fieri got his start in the restaurant business in 1996, when he and business partner Steve Gruber opened a restaurant in California. Ten years later, Fieri won Food Network's second season of The Next Food Network Star. Now, he's best known as the host of the beloved food show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, which is in its 12th season and still going strong.

If all of that wasn't enough of a success story for you, Fieri is taking it to the next level with his new book "Guy Fieri Family Food."

He stopped by the BUILD Series stage to tell us all about it, and not to mention gave revealed to us what food he'd eat for the rest of his life.

On the BUILD stage, Fieri opened out about the inspiration for his book: "I was just rambling on [to my publicist] and told her about Ryder and I making pizza dough, and how much he likes it, just rambling on because it's about my kids and food and things I like the most. And that was it."

From there, Fieri's publicist was hooked on the idea. Fieri cites his wife, Lori, and his two kids, Ryder and Hunter, as being a big reason he wrote the book.

"It's like kids doing a spelling test and bringing it home and putting it on the fridge. Teach your kids to cook and they'll have the same level of appreciation."

That's not all Fieri has going on! He was also in New York City this October to participate in the New York City Wine and Food Festival, specifically a food fight night hosted by the pro-chef himself.

The event ran from 11PM to 1AM, and featured a late-night trivia game with amazing chefs like Scott Conant, Carla Hall, and more.
