A Michelin star is good. A James Beard, fairly nice as properly. But for some cooks nothing feels fairly as candy as besting Bobby Flay.
Since 2013, the Iron Chef, a three-time James Beard honoree himself, has been taking up challengers together with his Food Network collection, Beating Bobby Flay, a pure extension of the head-to-head face-offs he engaged in on Iron Chef and Throwdown With Bobby Flay. The present’s recipe is pretty simple. Each half-hour episode begins with two cooks battling it out to create a meal utilizing a featured ingredient (suppose: contemporary squid, pumpkin puree, sardines).
Once a winner has been decided by the visitor judges—everybody from Chrissy Teigen to Sophia Bush to Flay’s buddies Katie Lee has turned up with the intention of discovering somebody able to taking him down—that victor will get a swing at The French Culinary Institute grad and they get to determine what’s on the menu, typically a signature dish that they’ve spent years perfecting.
