Chef Bobby Flay is on a secret mission to challenge the absolute masters in one kind of cooking-award winning BBQers, bakers, pizza makers and more-some with a roomful of trophies to prove it. In each episode, one of these cooks thinks Food Network is shooting their profile for a television special. What they don't know is that Bobby is going to drop in for a surprise visit and challenge them to an unexpected cook-off. Since they're in their element and Bobby's out of his, prepare for an exciting, tension-filled competition. Written by
The "Throwdown" formula is simple. Highly-trained chef and host, Bobby Flay, gets his staff to convince hometown cooking heroes that Food Network wants to make a feature about them. Instead, Bobby Flay shows up, and tries to show that he can do a better job than the local chefs at their specialty, even though Flay just learned to make their dish a week ago. It's like promising a local swim champ that CNN wants to feature him for being such an inspiration with a new technique--but then, they send Michael Phelps to show the kid that he actually sucks compared to an Olympian. Having Bobby Flay duke it out with great local chefs is a cool idea, but I don't know why he has to ambush them and crush their dreams all at once.
