What Would Bobby Do? Watch Instant Re-Flays

By: Debra Puchalla

WWBD? It’s easier to be behind the camera than in front of it. And armchair quarterbacking a demo is more fun than doing one: I would’ve, he could’ve, she should’ve.

Even Bobby Flay knows the lens is a tough judge. So he's sharing his tips this season, making over finalists' recipes. This week, Bobby is pierside in Santa Monica, dishing out uncommonly sensible advice: Tom's fish taco churros could've benefited from citrus--yes, Grant, I too would be happy to discus Tom's  'do. Then Bobby takes on Paul's dish; he could've kicked it with a savory dish truly inspired by caramel corn (hint: focus, Paul, honey).
