Monday night, I had the amazing opportunity to meet the great chef and grilling master, Bobby Flay. A local bookstore sponsored the event, which was a live interview and book signing.
Wow, I can't believe I really got to meet him! I was trying my best not to appear overexcited, but I was jumping for joy on the inside!
It was an unforgettable experience. Bobby Flay is a great speaker; I could have listened to him all night! I wish I could say the same for the woman who interviewed him. Her questions were long and often unclear, and I got the impression that the only research she did on Flay was via Wikipedia. However, it was the interviewee rather than the interviewer who I came to see, and he did not disappoint.
La nourriture: In honor of Bobby Flay Night, I made one of his recipes on Sunday. I decided to try his Black Pepper and Ginger Chicken Tacos with Red Curry-Peanut Sauce. And yes, those tacos are as delicious as they sound.
I love tacos, and I can’t get enough of anything that has a peanut sauce; this was the perfect combination of two loves. The bold flavors and contrasting textures make these tacos fun and easy to eat!
There will definitely be more Bobby Flay recipes to come, especially now that I have a new (signed!) copy of his Bar Americain Cookbook.
