  • Bobby Flay loves every inch of Italy from Sicily in the south all the way up to the Alps in the north. Today, he focuses that devotion on the top half of the country as he lights up the backyard with some Northern Italian-inspired grilling. Where better to start than with the legendary, crave worthy hunk of meaty deliciousness from Florence - the famous Bistecca alla Fiorentina. Chef Flay tops this marinated medium-rare Porterhouse with an herby, fragrant Balsamic-Rosemary Steak Sauce and pairs it with a salad made of Grilled Treviso with Gorgonzola. Next, he pays homage to the pizzerias of Naples by making a Grilled Pizza topped with Shaved Asparagus, Robiola and Romano cheeses and Parsley Oil. Then he tops a savory sausage Spiedini Hoagie with a Caprese Relish featuring fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. Finally, Bobby raises a toast to La Dolce Vita with his glamorously refreshing Raspberry-Basil Limoncello Cocktail. Saluti!
