Last week, I was trying to think of new topics for future blog posts because I like to keep it fun and exciting over here at What Mimi Writes -- I think it's good to change things up a bit, and I really try to spread out my posts into many different topics (and I hope I'm succeeding at it!). :D
So, my sister suggested I pick one Food Network chef and pick a couple of his/her recipes to share with you guys. Brilliant, right? I love Food Network and I love food = perfect!
I decided to start with Bobby Flay because I mentioned in one of my recent posts that I would love to eat at Mesa Grill. ;)
Bobby Flay discovered his culinary identity at the age of 17, working as a cook at the famed theatre district haunt Joe Allen's. The job had been arranged by his father, who was a partner in the restaurant. After a short time, Joe Allen himself became so impressed by Bobby's talents that he paid the young cook's tuition to the French Culinary Institute.
He is the owner and executive chef of 12 restaurants: Mesa Grill in Las Vegas, New York City, and in the Bahamas (Atlantis Paradise Island, Nassau); Bar Americain in New York City and Uncasville, Connecticut; Bobby Flay Steak in Atlantic City, New Jersey; and Bobby's Burger Palace in Lake Grove, New York, Paramus, New Jersey, Eatontown, New Jersey, Uncasville, Connecticut, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Washington D.C.
Have you eaten at any of Bobby Flay's restaurants?
To add to his impressive collection of restaurants, he has also starred in countless Food Network shows -- and not to mention, he is an Iron Chef on Iron Chef America!
He won almost all Iron Chef episodes I've seen with him as a competitor -- except for the one where he was paired with Giada de Laurentiis (against Mario Batali and Rachael Ray).
Okay, here are three recipes we can try this weekend:
Total Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 5 hours 40 minutes
Oh my gosh, how delicious does that fried chicken look -- especially with honey?!
I think the shrimp is perfect for an outdoor barbecue get-together.
We can easily whip up the grilled chicken paillard for lunch.
What do you guys think?
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
P.S. If you have time, I hope you can come and join my $25 Apothica gift card giveaway! :)
