Grill It! with Bobby Flay Marathon
Memorial Day is the official unofficial start to the summer grilling season and to celebrate, as they do every year, Food Network is in the throws of it’s Grilling Week. It started on the Sunday before Memorial Day with a Food Network Challenge that featured a battle of the sexes All Star Grill-Off followed by Iron Chef: America pitting Curtis Stone against the grill master himself Bobby Flay.
Those were just warm ups. FN is kicking off Memorial Day with a four and half hour marathon of Grill It! with Bobby Flay, the companion series to the Iron chef’s popular cookbook. The marathon will feature a dozen episodes from various seasons so expect to see the comfortable Brooklyn back drop and the mountainous LA set as well.
For those who are unfamiliar Grill It! here’s the FN set-up:
Fans of Bobby Flay stop him at every corner, begging for a chance to cook with the chef – and now they can. Thirteen lucky Food Network viewers, all known for their own grill mastery, have been chosen to cook alongside the grilling guru himself in Grill It! with Bobby Flay. In each episode, the guest griller’s best recipe is the food of the day. The twist is that Chef Flay has no clue about the food of choice until the guest arrives, so he has to whip up his own recipe on the fly. It isn’t about the competition; it’s about the opportunity of a lifetime – to grill it with one of the best pit masters around.
