Lobster Roll, or anything to do with lobster

  1. Ha! I like to watch to see Bobby humbled a bit or at least act like he's humbled. Anyway, I'd like to see these three as throwdowns:

    Enchiladas or Tamales
    Spaghetti and Meatballs

      Latkes! Oy vey, I'd like to see that one. Have him against a bubbe from Brooklyn living in a nursing home, who's been making them since 1899 from scratch on some old rusty box grater (because you know, the rust and bits of finger skin are what give her latkes their characteristic authentic flavor). I can see him pulling out his fancy food processor, doing his usual southwestern spin and trying to do a sweet potato latke, with a chipotle spiced sour cream, it would just be SO wrong!

      BTW - I actually like him, and the show, but in this instance, I think I would enjoy seeing him get creamed!

          For some reason, I'm reminded of one of my favorite Iron Chef episodes here. It's the Potato battle, where some little old lady (who admittedly had written cookbooks and hosted a cooking show) just runs Chen Kenichi ragged all the way through while barely breaking a sweat, and manages to win the battle in convincing fashion. Normally I'd be rooting for Chen in a battle, but that one was just fun to watch.

          They already did a pizza throwdown, i think it was one of the first ones

          also Pumpkin Pie would be good

        2. Have they done a chicken and dumplings throwdown yet? That would be fun. Also tacos. or enchiladas -- I'd love to see him break free of his beloved chipoltles. Latkes would be a kick-- that made me giggle! How about reuben sandwiches with potato salad? I do like watching that show -- I think Bobby Flay shows a real respect for the folks he's going up against.

          1. I enjoy this show too. I'd love to see him do a vegan throwdown. And Dio mentioned sushi -- it appears in the opening as one of the throwdowns, but I've never seen one.

            Hey how about Bourdain and Flay in the vegan throwdown? ;-)

            Latkes would be hilarious!

              I think he did sushi with Morimoto way back in the beginning

              1. re: acorgihouse

                How about fugu? That will add a certain edge.

            2. I'd like to see one where he decides he can't compete head-to-head with a traditional recipe, so "he's going with lots of flavor". Oh wait....
