What to Watch: Bobby's Dinner Battle

Related To:

If you've ever felt overwhelmed at the prospect of entertaining a houseful of party guests or cooking a meal for your opinionated relatives, then you can begin to imagine the pressure under which home cooks find themselves on Bobby's Dinner Battle, Bobby Flay's newest show that challenges three teams of home cooks to prepare three-course dinner parties for this professional chef and restaurateur. Although they don't have formal culinary training, the contestants are not simply kitchen novices. They consider themselves to be some of the best home cooks in their area and pride themselves on their ability to craft full-flavored, restaurant-quality meals using advanced techniques in their kitchens at home.

Each week, Bobby will travel to a different city where new groups of home cooks must put their best culinary chops forward in themed challenges to create event menus with limited time and money. Bobby will be joined by a special guest in each city, and these esteemed dinner party guests will help judge the competitors on the taste and presentation of their offerings, plus how well they've embraced the given theme.

Tune in to the series premiere of Bobby's Dinner Battle on Wednesday, Jan. 16, at 10pm/9c.
