Full Episode Guide
  • BBQ is definitely Bobby Flay's passion, and he makes it clear with a backyard spread destined to be a home run at your next summer party. Chef Flay hits the grill with an Upstate New York favorite: tangy, herbaceous Cornell Chicken with Grilled Steak Fries. Tender Grilled White Fish goes exotic when brushed with a spicy Moroccan Chermoula marinade. The American Southwest rubs up against Southeast Asia with Bobby's savory Red Curry Marinated Skirt Steak Fajitas. Finished off with a cocktail version of that quintessential summer combo, Strawberry and Rhubarb Margaritas, and you will wish the season would go on forever.

  • Bobby Flay celebrates the bounty of summer in this farm fresh barbecue. His menu includes Basil Rubbed Halibut With Puttanesca Relish, Maple-Mustard-Mixed Pepper Glazed Salmon With Brussels Sprouts Slaw and Grilled Sausages With Grilled Shallot Relish and Ricotta. To drink Chef Flay blends up some Layered Summer Fruit Smoothies. Summer doesn't get any better — or fresher! — than this.

  • Chef Bobby Flay showcases his passion for Mediterranean food while revealing ways to make your time at the grill even easier. He's sharing his signature technique for the juiciest Grilled Corn on the Cob. He'll also dip into his produce bin to whip up a crunchy Carrot Slaw and a smooth Grilled Eggplant Dip. Plus, he reveals his unique trick for grilling fish while infusing it with a ton of flavor. And he's pouring a glass of Rose wine with a fruity addition to keep things cool.

  • Chef Bobby Flay demonstrates some of his favorite grilling shortcuts with a crowd-pleasing taco-themed menu. He'll reveal his secret for getting smoky flavor for his Glazed Lamb Tacos with fresh salsa and puts together a spice-infused Portobello and Vegetable Taco topped with queso fresco. Plus, his go-to five-ingredient salad and a party pitcher of Brazilian Limeade.

  • It is the song of the islands as Bobby Flay brings the flavors and spices of the Caribbean to the grill. He conjures up the warm breezes by searing a Coconut Marinated Pork Tenderloin, and topping it with a fresh and spicy herb sauce; then breaks out the hot and savory island seasonings for some lip-tingling Smoked Jerk Chicken Wings with a sweet and sour Honey-Tamarind Dipping Sauce. Since the Caribbean is also famous for its azure waters, we dive into some beautiful seafood by way of Bobby's tart and refreshing Ceviche with Serrano Chiles, Mango, Smoked Tomatoes & Crispy Plantain Chips. No trip to the beach would be complete without an icy glass of Tropical Sangria, it will get you ready for the limbo in no time.
