Throwdown With Bobby Flay (or Throwdown! with Bobby Flay) features Chef Bobby Flay challenging cooks renowned for a special dish or type of cooking to a cook-off of their signature dish in this reality cooking competition series.
At the beginning of each show, Flay receives (via bicycle messenger) a packager detailing the chef he is to compete against as well as the dish. Examples of opponents include a skilled chili maker or a famous wedding cake designer. After practicing and preparing the item in question, Flay shows up for a surprise competition (or "Throwdown"). During the competition, both chefs prepare their particular version of the dish, and both are then evaluated by local judges to determine a winner.
