Celebrity chef and Food Network fixture Bobby Flay catches up with Jaymee as they reminisce on how they first met during an episode of SportsCenter and how Bobby supported Jaymee during her transition to food media. Bobby gives the latest update on his two beloved cats, Nacho and Stella, and who started the Maine Coon trend among the Food Network stars. Bobby shares the memories of when he first heard of Food Network, initially called The Television Food Network, and his skepticism about how long it would actually last. He talks about his first show, “Grillin’ and Chillin’”, and a never-before-told story about those early days. Bobby and Jaymee talk about his daughter, Sophie Flay, what it’s like to work together and the characteristic he admires most in her. He grills Jaymee about her affection for smash burgers, names his favorite New York burger spot and the sign he puts up in every Bobby’s Burger restaurant kitchen. Bobby shares the strategy behind developing new shows and what movie inspired his latest show, Bobby’s Triple Threat. He talks about how he chose his three culinary titans and the undercover mission to Tiffany Derry’s restaurant to cast her for the show. Bobby shares the unique premise of the show and reveals what is really in the prized duffel bag. He passionately talks about why the dishes on his shows are judged hot and why he’s grown weary of questions about the legitimacy of Beat Bobby Flay before diving into the insane shooting schedule and why he is a stickler for time on set.
