Review: Brunch at Bobby’s
I finally got a little more quality time with the Cooking Channel so I am attempting to review several of the shows I have not seen. This time around Brunch At Bobby’s.
Bobby Flay and the Food Network have been pseudonymous with one another since 1993 so when parent company Scripps decided to spin-off another foodie channel it seemed obvious that they tap their workaholic star to help out. Brunch At Bobby’s gives the master griller a chance to explore what he calls he favorite meal to cook.
According to the Cooking Channel web site, “With a spatula in one hand and a cocktail in the other, Bobby goes from sweet to salty to savory, drawing inspiration for every-occasion brunches from around the country and around the globe. Brunch has never been more inviting.”
Well, I settled down for an episode and this is what I found – vintage Bobby Flay. The on-screen polish and charm were there. The amazing recipes that always seem to flow seamlessly from one to the next and presentation that could make you hungry even if you just finished thanksgiving dinner were there as well. There is a reason why Flay’s shows always resonate with viewers – Flay. His shows always feature a natural balance of color, humor, education and food porn.
I love the fact that Brunch At Bobby’s is shot in an actual home kitchen, a trend I have noticed on a lot of the Cooking Channel’s original programming. Big brother Food Network has always tended towards sets designed to look like a real home; I prefer little brother’s approach.
