  • 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.

  • 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 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!

  • 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.

His fresh and flavor infused dishes include Greek favorites like Gyros With Radish Tzatziki and Oregano Vinaigrette With Grilled Plum Tomatoes.
