Win Cookbook, Tickets To See Bobby Flay

Bobby Flay was in town last week to open the new Bobby's Burger Palace on K Street, and he'll be back Sept. 21 to speak at Sixth & I as part of the tour for his newest book, "Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain Cookbook."

Flay's cookbook offers more than 110 recipes that cover the country's favorite regional flavors.

One lucky reader will win two tickets to the event and a copy of the cookbook, a more than $80 value.

To enter, please leave a comment with your favorite regional dish by Friday at 10 a.m. I'll announce a winner in the comments on Friday, so be sure to check back.

Full event details are on the Metrocurean calendar.

Good luck!

For the DC-MD-VA region, I'd have to go with Maryland crabcakes. Other favorite from other regions: pumpernickel bagel with smoked whitefish salad from New York and fried whole clams (none of that clam strips BS) from coastal New England.

Pimento cheese. Even though it's being stolen by other regions and fancified, it's still a Southern original.

regional dish - spam musubi (hawaii)!
from the DC-area, I love those half-smokes.

Monica said...

I can't pick just one. If we're talking the Carolinas, it's either shrimp salad, western North Carolina barbecue, or deviled eggs. The DMV area definitely has the best soft shell crabs with Old Bay and crabcakes of the whole country. Is New York pizza a regional dish?

Dave H said...

from the bay: pan fried softshell crabs with chipotle aioli

Ro F. said...

Does it have to be from the U.S.? If not, then poutine! If so, bagels - but only from NY, of course. :)

Girl Kyle said...

Samantha Cox said...

Bobby, watched your bar-b-q special last night, love your grilled peaches and grilled pizza bianco.........awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

Beth Greenberg said...

Halfsmoke, split, with chili, cheese, onion, mustard and relish.
Fries and mumbo sauce if you want to get creative.
If you want to live dangerously, you could try to re-create the steak and cheese egg roll from the carryout, but that's serious business.

Lynn said...

When I was young, I loved my Grandmother coming to visit who was from New England.

She made home made New England Clam Chowder, the best grilled cheese sandwich with bread she baked in our kitchen, strawberry milkshakes with strawberries she grew and since she owned an ice cream parlor she would make ice cream at our home, we ovedosed on home made ice cream all summer. Those were the good ole days. I wish I could cook even these simple things they way she did!
