Episode Description

Now an accomplished food star and restaurateur, Flay picked up cooking at the age of 17 at theatre row favorite, Joe Allen's, where he came under the watchful of Joe himself. Mr. Allen was so impressed with the teen's knack for cookery that he paid his tuition to the French Culinary Institute. First being introduced to Southwestern ingredients and influences by restaurant owner Jonathan Waxman, Flay made these a part of the distinctive style that led him rapidly up the "Foodie" ladder of success. Now a TV star of his own shows, a food correspondent for CBS's The Early Show and author of a number of stellar cook books including the hugely popular "Boy Meets Grill," Flay's star continues to rise.
