  • Bobby Flay takes us way beyond the burrito with his culinary tour of the diverse and delicious cuisine of Mexico. He starts off with a citrusy street food from the country's west coast: Charcoal Grilled Chicken Sinaloa Style. He serves it with a smoky, refreshing Grilled Green Onion, Quinoa and Corn Relish. Next up, we head to the heartland of Mexican food on the strength of Chef Flay's Oaxaca Burger topped with Manchego cheese, Avocado and Spicy Pickled Red Onions. Grilled Mango tricked out in the traditional way with Lime, Salt and caliente Ancho Chile Powder teases and tantalizes; and a Raspberry Peach Aqua Fresca puts out the fire. Que rico!

  • The food of California, with its devotion to fresh, local and seasonal ingredients started a revolution all across America. Bobby Flay loves bringing the light fresh cooking of our 31st state to the grill, and kicks off California day with a savory Grilled Lamb Sausage Salad topped with Goat Cheese, Black Olives and Pistachio Vinaigrette. 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!

  • Bobby Flay knows just what to do to bring the fresh and simple flavors of Greece into your own backyard. Inspired by the sea, Bobby's Grilled Shrimp gets the classic accompaniment of fresh Tomato and salty Feta cheese; then he pairs simply Grilled Sardines with a piquant Garlic Walnut Sauce. Meat in Greece usually means lamb, and Bobby does that expectation justice by laying out a veritable feast of Rotisserie Lamb with Pomegranate and Mint, alongside a Lemon Feta Slaw and Homemade Grilled Pita. What better way to toast this feast than with a dazzling Vodka Grape Sparkler?

  • What a treat you're in for in this Middle Eastern Bobby Flay style barbecue! Bobby whips up an amazing Tuna Kofte with a Pomegranate-Molasses-Fresh Mint Glaze with Crushed Spicy Hummus. And of course there must be lamb, so he makes Apricot Glazed Lamb Chops with Pistachio and Sumac; Sea Scallops with Cracked wheat Salad, and a Grilled Bread Salad with Peppers, Tomatoes and Green Onion Vinaigrette.

  • Bobby Flay goes Mediterranean as he barbecues an amazing Italian menu that will have you shouting "Mangia!" Delicious Rosemary Smoked Chicken starts off this meal, followed by Wood Grilled Oysters with Crispy Pancetta-Tomato-Basil Mignonette, and Grilled Roasted Pork Loin with "Sweet and Sour" Agro Dolce Grilled Peaches. Yum. And of course it wouldn't be an Italian barbecue without Bobby's personal twist on a Roman favorite - Grilled Pizza Bianca.

Chicken Yakitori spices things up, and Asian Spice Rubbed Ribs with Pineapple-Ginger BBQ Sauce rounds out this incredible meal.

  • Bobby Flay says goodbye to summer with a barbecue party celebrating the best ingredients from Long Island, his summer home. He serves up Roasted Duck BBQ Sliders, Heirloom Tomato and Grilled Corn Panzanella Salad With Salmon, Grilled Filet Mignon With Lavender-Honey Vinaigrette and to drink, a Long Island Iced Tea, of course! It's one tasty way to celebrate summer with a bang — and a flame!
