Enter to Win a Copy of Bobby Flay's New Cookbook, Brunch @ Bobby's
With his penchant for Southwestern flavors and a string of successful Bobby's Burger Palace restaurants, Bobby Flay has surely earned the right to call himself a taco master and a burger aficionado, though his range in the kitchen doesn't stop there — or even at lunch or dinner. He also has an appetite for brunch, which he explores on the series Brunch @ Bobby's and in his brand-new cookbook of the same name. Available for preorder now and officially on sale on Sept. 29, Brunch @ Bobby's: 140 Recipes for the Best Part of the Weekend explores the best sweet and savory side of this late-morning meal, from a towering stack of chocolate pancakes to an all-new take on bacon, eggs and hash browns.
Recently FN Dish checked in with Bobby, and he revealed his go-to brunch order as well as his take on why brunch has become so popular. When he goes out for brunch, he's quick to balance the meal by including both salty and sweet elements, explaining, "It always involves eggs, but I always order something for the table, whether it’s like French toast or waffles or pancakes — in that sort of vernacular, like the sweet brunch." As for a cocktail to sip on the side, he keeps it simple, opting for a mimosa. "The juice, to me, [it] just has to be fresh-squeezed," says Bobby. He's familiar with the "ritual" that brunch has become, and says, "It’s the way that people entertain in terms of meeting out. People have their brunch places that they go every weekend." He adds, "It’s a great way to kind of grab the newspaper, have some coffee, have your brunch cocktail and then sort of carry on your Sunday."
When you get your hands on a copy of Bobby's cookbook, be sure to make the Almond Croissant French Toast with Almond Butter Syrup first, per Bobby's recommendation. "On the weekends people buy croissants a lot. If you have any left over, it's perfect to make French toast with," he told us.
