Bobby Flay may be known for bringing the heat — both on the plate and off — in the Beat Bobby Flay arena, but when it’s just him and his daughter, Sophie Flay, in the kitchen, the scene is anything but competitive.

We recently caught up with Bobby, and he told us how much Sophie enjoys the world of food. “She’s really interested in food, loves to eat food, loves to go to restaurants, will try anything,” he explained. “I just thought it was kind of fun that she wanted me to teach her how to make a dish or two.” And when it comes to Sophie’s seemingly born-with-it comfort on camera, Bobby credits Sophie’s fearless attitude. “The thing about Sophie is, like, you talk about getting nervous in front of the camera — I don’t think she ever does,” Bobby said. “I don’t think she cares — but in the best way. I don’t think she’s worried about it.”
