Are you ready for a Throwdown? In his first ever direct Food Network tie-in cookbook, star chef Bobby Flay presents the sought-after recipes from his hit show, now in its seventh season.
Every week celebrity chef and restaurateur Bobby Flay goes head-to-head with cooks who have staked their claim as masters of an iconic dish--buffalo wings, chicken cacciatore, sticky buns, or coconut cake--even though he may never have cooked these things before. The results are always entertaining--and delicious. In his first-ever cookbook collaboration with Food Network, Bobby shares for the first time the recipes and the fun from his popular show.
Both Bobby's recipes and his challengers' are included, comprising a "best of" cross-country tour of regional specialties and good-hearted competitive spirit. Try dishes such as Bobby's winning Mac and Cheese Carbonara recipe, which just edged out Delilah Winder's 7-Cheese Mac and Cheese, made famous at her eponymous restaurant in Philadelphia, PA; or Joe and John Castro's Kentucky Hot Browns, served at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY--the recipe that served Bobby a major defeat. Home cooks can make both dishes and decide for themselves which one wins!
Color photos documenting favorite Throwdown! moments will fill the pages, as will beautiful, all-new color food photography created just for this book. Bobby Flay's Throwdown! is the ultimate companion cookbook to one of America's favorite food shows. As Bobby says at the end of each episode, "So to all you cooks out there, keep doing what you do. But ask yourself this: Are you ready for a Throwdown?"
