"Throwdown" features Flay competing against various cooks (who specialize in a certain dish or style) to prove who is the true master in the kitchen. The set up is that most of the chefs and cooks believe they are being profiled by the Food Network until Flay shows up to challenge them.
"Throwdown with Bobby Flay" will air from 9-10 PM ET. Check local listings.
