  • Bobby Flay celebrates one of his favorite regional American cuisines in this Southern barbecue menu that includes BBQ Ribs With a Root Beer BBQ Sauce, Grilled Shrimp With Tomato-Bacon-Scallion Vinaigrette, Smoked Sausage With Green Tomato Relish and Mississippi Mud Pie Milkshakes.

  • 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.

  • You may need a "siesta" after Bobby Flay is finished with this "grande" Spanish barbecue meal. For this menu, Bobby makes a stunning, seafood-filled, flavor-packed Paella on the Grill, accompanied by Spanish Spice Rubbed Rack of Pork with Sherry Vinegar BBQ Sauce and Grilled Peaches in Wine.

  • Chef Bobby Flay transforms ordinary grilled sausages into extraordinary sandwiches. His menu features Beer Glazed Grilled Bratwurst With a Wilted Red Cabbage Slaw and open-faced Grilled New York-Style Sausage Sandwiches With Balsamic Onions and Grilled Tomatoes. And he's cooling things down with a tea-infused bubbly cocktail.

  • 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.

  • Bobby Flay utilizes the crown jewels of the Pacific Northwest to create an unbelievable barbecue menu that would make the region proud. Fresh from the Pacific, Hot Smoked Salmon is served with a crisp, refreshing Salad of Apples, Dried Cherries, Hazelnuts and Apple Cider Vinaigrette. Next, Bobby steams gigantic, gorgeous Dungeness Crabs in a pick-me-up sauce with Ginger, Soy, Lime and Mirin. And it wouldn't be a Bobby Flay barbecue without succulent Burgers cooked on Cedar Planks and served with Grilled Walla Walla Onions and Mushrooms.

  • Bobby Flay's exploring the flavors that first inspired him, and he is giving some unlikely ingredients the Southwestern treatment! First, Grilled Oysters christened with a tart and spicy Jalapeno-Cilantro Mignonette; then some meaty Lobster Tails hit the grill brushed with savory Lemon and Red Fresno Chile Butter. Yet, it is not all seafood on this tour. Taking inspiration from his favorite fried chicken, Chef Flay makes Red Chile Buttermilk Brined Chicken that he takes to Taos with a Spicy Mango Honey Glaze. Paired with a Napa Cabbage Cole Slaw with Creamy Cumin Vinaigrette and a refreshing Lime Ricky Margarita Float, the desert heat has never been cooler.

  • 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!

  • Always keeping health and fitness in mind, Bobby Flay creates a menu for the barbecue that's delicious and guilt-free. This fresh and fit menu includes Grilled Trout With Grilled Radicchio and Orange-Almond Vinaigrette, Grilled Tuna With Grilled Ratatouille Couscous With Deconstructed Pesto, Fresh Peach and Tomato Salad With Sweet Southern Dressing, Pecans and Farmer's Cheese and to drink, a refreshing White Peach Iced Tea cocktail!
