Sophie Flay, daughter of culinary icon Bobby Flay, shares why she chose a journalism career over following in her dad’s footsteps and tells us her favorite types of stories to cover in the Los Angeles area. She talks about her experience covering the Olympics in Beijing and Pyeongchang, and why she is drawn to stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Sophie talks about what it’s really like to work with her dad and why she sometimes avoids calling him for help in the kitchen before sharing her favorite go-to meals. Sophie recalls memories of watching her dad on television and why she hated when he would lose in a competition. She reveals who chooses restaurants when she goes to dinner with her dad and what their new show, Bobby & Sophie on the Coast, is all about. She shares what it’s like filming and working with her dad, teases some of her favorite food spots that are featured on the show and shares her thoughts on why she thinks her dad is such a talented competition chef.
