Bobby Flay Knows Exactly What He Would Cook For His Dream Dinner Guest
Food Network star Bobby Flay, known for hit TV shows like "Brunch @ Bobby's" and "Throwdown with Bobby Flay," loves to make breakfast sandwiches, play pool, and cook for family and friends in his spare time. He also wishes he could cook a special meal for his certain dream dinner guest — Muhammed Ali.
Muhammed Ali was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and Flay's dream menu inspiration for the legendary boxer draws from the city. The chef told Delish, "I would prepare a meal using ingredients from that region. Bourbon-glazed pork chops, cheesy grits, buttermilk biscuits, and whatever else the Champ wanted."
Louisville's cuisine is a mix of Southern, Midwestern, and farm-to-table influences, with local favorites including cornbread pancakes, fried chicken, the open-faced sandwich called Hot Brown, and plenty of bourbon. It makes sense Flay would want to stick to these traditions for one of the city's most famous figures.
