  • Chef Bobby Flay creates a Mediterranean-inspired menu using some of his go-to grilling tricks. He'll use his favorite gadget — skewers — to make grilling simpler for Zucchini With a Jalapeno Yogurt Sauce and Shrimp drizzled with a Calabrian Chile Oil, served with a Greek spin on classic Pasta Salad. Plus, Bobby's foolproof formula for mixing up a pitcher of refreshing Sangria.

  • 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.

  • Bobby Flay has Italy on his mind while barbecuing mouthwatering dishes like Fennel-Garlic Smoked Pork With Fennel Gremolata and Grape Mostarda, Panzanella Verde and Grilled Baby Artichokes With Mixed Herbs and White Wine. And he finishes things off with an effervescent Espresso Soda.

  • 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.
