Full Episode Guide
  • Chef Bobby Flay shares his most versatile grilling techniques to make an incredible meal with whatever's freshest at the market. On the menu are his Sticky Glazed Chicken Thighs in Butter Lettuce and a Corn and Scallion Salad with a fresh herb dressing. Bobby's also using the grill for fresh peaches and topping them with an Arugula Pesto and thinly sliced Prosciutto. And with extra herbs on hand, Bobby mixes up a mint tea cocktail to drink!

  • Chef Bobby Flay's proving there's more to grilling than just burgers and hot dogs. His light and healthy menu features Grilled Halibut finished with a flavorful drizzle of citrus-brown butter vinaigrette, a versatile grilled veggie and bread salad tossed in an herb dressing and crunchy chilled green beans with a basic vinaigrette. And to get the party started — blackberry-flavored shooters!

  • Chef Bobby Flay reveals how to bring an elegant steakhouse experience to your backyard using simple techniques and staple ingredients. He reveals his unique method for grilling juicy Rib-Eye Steak with ease. Plus, Bobby whips up some crisp Grilled Potatoes With a Mustard-Garlic Dressing and charred Broccoli Rabe With a Red Pepper Relish. And to drink, a bubbly grape cocktail.

  • Classic Southern food is one of this country's most beloved regional cuisines, but a new style of cooking is rising out of Dixie, and Bobby Flay thinks it works beautifully on the hot grates! Light Smoked Trout Lettuce Wraps take us about as far from barbecue as you can get, topped with Sliced Carrots and a creamy Meyer Lemon Dressing. Then, a classic Southern cracker spread makes a surprising and tangy appearance on Chef Flay's juicy Pimento Cheese Bacon Burger. Next, Southern curry makes an appearance on his Curry-Rubbed Smoked Chicken Thighs with Sorghum-Chile Glaze. And finally, Bobby whips up a Sparkling Bourbon Lemonade, a heat-beater that just might unseat the Mint Julep as the go-to Southern cooler. It'll be delicious, y'all!
