Full Episode Guide
  • The food of California, with its devotion to fresh, local and seasonal ingredients started a revolution all across America.

Next, he elevates the humble spud with his smoky and tangy Mustard Aioli Grilled Potatoes with Fine Herbs. Chef Flay believes you can't talk about California cuisine without mentioning its spiritual father Wolfgang Puck, so Bobby pays homage by grilling a Puck-inspired Smoked Salmon Pizza. We finish our trip with his refreshing Rose Punch, a drink that combines both the fruit orchards and vineyards of the Golden State. Westward ho!
