When Bobby Flay isn’t cooking in one of his restaurants, he is known for hosting some of the best weekend gatherings, cooking and feeding friends who may be visiting for few days or just stopping by to say hello. This September, Bobby opens his home to viewers and, along with his friend Damaris Phillips, the two cook together and chat up a storm in the new series The Bobby and Damaris Show, premiering Sunday, Sept. 3 at 12:30|11:30c. The two met when Bobby hosted and Damaris won Food Network Star, Season 9, and neither are ever at a loss for words when talking about their passion for food, American and Southern classics, as well as great cocktails. Bobby brings his chef sensibility, while Damaris is the self-proclaimed “food geek” and culinary instructor — and she’s not afraid to school her once-mentor and keep him current on the latest trends. With episode themes from grilling and game day to a fall apple feast, this culinary duo is tops in talking food, testing quirky ideas and entertaining friends who stop by, including Ina Garten, Alex Guarnaschelli and Katie Lee.
