  • You might mistake Bobby Flay's backyard with a Mediterranean island when he's finished with this Greek inspired barbecue menu. His fresh and flavor infused dishes include Greek favorites like Gyros With Radish Tzatziki and Oregano Vinaigrette With Grilled Plum Tomatoes. Bobby makes culinary perfection look easy as he whips up Charcoal Grilled Shrimp and Kalamari With Grilled Lemons and Smoked Tomato-Black Olive Relish, and a Grilled Fingerling Potato Salad With Feta, Green Beans, Olives and Red Wine Vinaigrette.

  • 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!

  • A recent trip to Sicily inspired Bobby Flay to really think about the foods of Southern Italy in a new way, to take those amazing flavors and traditions and turn up the heat -- literally. Spice is front and center with his Brined and Butterflied Chicken Alla Diavola, paired with a cool Lemony Fennel Slaw. Then Bobby puts gorgeous grill marks on a Southern Italian staple with his Grilled Eggplant Caponata Bruschetta with Ricotta Salata. The sea is always nearby, and Bobby uses it to his advantage by making a Grilled Tuna with Caramelized Onions, Cinnamon and Mint. A refreshing Prosecco cocktail called the Sgroppino completes this delicious tour of the warmer part of the peninsula.

  • Chef Bobby Flay celebrates his favorite dish by revealing his effortless approach for dynamite fish tacos. He's mixing a customized spice rub to use on Grilled Mahi Mahi and balancing flavors and textures with an Avocado Relish With Cilantro Pesto, a Red Cabbage Citrus Slaw and a Smoked Tomato Salsa Yogurt Crema. And he'll cool things down with some fruity Sparkling Aguas Frescas.

  • Get your margaritas going because Bobby is doing barbecue Mexican style! He grills up a Whole Red Snapper with Grilled Vera Cruz Salsa, and Tamarind Duck Glazed Tacos with Grilled Pineapple-Habanero Pickled Onion Relish, served with Corn Tortillas, of course. A Slow-Smoked Pork Tenderloin with Napa Cabbage Slaw and Queso Fresco promises to please.

  • It looks like Oktoberfest in Bobby Flay's barbecue world when he cooks up a classic German feast on the grill! First up, Hot Smoked Trout Salad with Cucumbers, Grilled Fingerling Potatoes and a Mustard-Dill Vinaigrette. Don't be shy because he's just getting started! Next up, plump Beer Brined Brats with a decadent Fondue, Bacon and Mushrooms. And it doesn't end there. Bobby rounds out this barbecue feast with Grilled Radicchio & Kale Sauerkraut Style.

  • Bobby Flay's tour through the "it" cuisine of the Iberian Peninsula starts by taking the classic Cuban Sandwich to Madrid with a Spanish Spice-Rubbed Pork Butt topped with Sherry Vinegar/Honey Glaze, Serrano ham and salty Manchego cheese. Then, a slather of Piquillo Pepper Butter and a sprinkle of Grated Manchego adorn sweet Grilled Corn. He dresses Skewered Lamb first with a Spicy Pomegranate/Rioja Red Wine Vinaigrette and takes it over the top with a Mint-Almond Relish. The capper? A fruity Peach-Blackberry Sangria.

  • 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.
