Get Fearless with this Bobby Flay Cookbook

by Bill Sweeney

I love cookbooks, especially a Bobby Flay cookbook packed with those wonderful Bobby Flay dishes!!! That’s why I’m so pleased that Clarkson Potter sent me a copy and is partnering with me for a giveaway. I’m going to talk about how great the book is, but I’m also going to share one of my favorite recipes from the new cookbook!!

Bobby at Home: Fearless Flavors From My Kitchen

My family and I love all of Bobby Flay’s shows and cookbooks. In fact, watching Bobby on TV is one of our favorite things to do when we visit my parents! Let me just start by saying that! Bobby at Home: Fearless Flavors From My Kitchen is no exception. In fact, he seems to keep getting bette and better. In his most personal cookbook yet, Bobby Flay shares over 165 bold, approachable recipes he cooks at home for family and friends. This book is literally packed with so many ridiculous recipes, it’s hard to hit on it all. No matter what you or your family likes, I would bet that Bobby Flay has you covered!!

Let’s talk about amazing pan-seared meats or some really hearty pastas. If you are looking for lighter, there’s also shareable platters of roasted vegetables and bountiful salads. Top any any and all of that off with some homey desserts and you are ready to go bigger and bolder like Bobby does. The breadth and range of these dishes is fantastic. I really don’t think you can get bored. Ever. With Bobby by your side, cooking at home just got a lot more exciting.

Wide Range of Recipes

Some of the most fantastic looks dishes have so include Spanish-style shrimp and grits, pumpkin pancakes with apple cider syrup, and sticky-savory-sweet Korean BBQ chicken. Dude, this book even packs crispy bacon glazed with pomegranate molasses, deviled eggs topped with fried oysters, and mussels steamed in a heady green curry broth!!!

I wanted to highlight a dish that I think represents all of the awesome of his book in one recipe. How do Brussels Sprout Nachos with Pickled Chiles sound to you? Excellent? I know it sounds good to me!! Check out the recipe below!

  13. Top with a layer of the warm chips and more sauce.
  14. Sprinkle some of the Brussels sprouts and pickled onions and chiles over the sauce, then repeat all the layers once more.

He seems very personable. Friendly. I think that his recipes are more complicated than those I usually do Certainly more ingredients. And more time involved than I usually spend. Probably why they taste so darn good. Ha Ha.
