Throwdown With Bobby Flay

i watched the 1st two shows last night, and i think it's an awesome concept.

question: have you ever noticed how flay almost always uses a whisk when he's cooking? i rarely see him use spoons or anything else...

what's up with the whisking?

Dang, I missed it...

What were the episode genre's? I thought I heard one of them was Chowder, but I didn't catch the other one. I guess I'll have to start TIVO'ing it..

the 1st episode was bobby versus the chowder master from brooklyn... i think his last name was Sargeant. he made a monkfish chowder with a special ingredient = an eel that he cut up live on tv. he also made a clam chowder with 4 different clams and a heavy dose of dill.

bobby made a lobster & corn chowder and a sweet potato chowder.

bobby flay won on flavor...

the 2nd episode pitted bobby flay against an expert wedding cake designer... the overall consensus was that her cake was way more beautiful, but bobby's cake was way more tempting. the judges made comments like, "i want to take a picture with that one, but i want to dive into bobby's cake and eat!!!!"

bobby flay LOST that battle.

awesome concept for a show. it had drama, comedy, elements of surprise and of course, great food.

i'm hooked already.

I agree, great concept for a show. Bobby Flay seems to be a natural in front of the camera.

My son (jrironchef) and I loved it too! Bobby's challenger on the chowder thought Bobby was cheating since he was using a pureeing tool (and some huge tool it was!). The Chowder Surfer Boy told Bobby to use his "muscles" to mash the ingredients in his chowder. By far, Bobby had all the essential tools to help him combine flavors and make textures. It was all fun! I love how Bobby works with smokey flavored peppers and veggies. He's by far, the best of American chefs.

The cake decorating challenge was mostly entertainment! Seeing Bobby mess up was something new and entertaining to see. We were LOHO when he tried to chop the sticks to hold up the second layer of the cake and then chopped some fresh flowers to decorate his practice cake. By far, I would have prefered his cake for flavor (not looks) after using coconut buttercream frosting on a chocolate ganache cake! Mmmm...we are hooked on this show.

I saw part of the wedding cake show. It looks like it might be a good program.
