Cheesesteak Throwdown This Week!
Sunday, October 15, 2006 | posted by Mike
I was checking out the Food Network earlier this weekend and saw a preview for a Throwdown! with Bobby Flay episode coming up on Thursday at 10:00. We mentioned some time ago that Bobby had come to TVFF.com's home town of Philadelphia and was going to duke it out using the city's pride and joy, the cheesesteak, as the battleground. And, if that wasn't good enough, it was rumored that Flay was taking on TVFF.com's favorite place, Tony Luke's.
Well, the rumor has been officially confirmed (thanks to the commercial) and we'll get to see what kind of strategy the outsider comes up with to try to win. As I've said before, there really isn't that much difference in the techniques involved in making cheesesteaks. It's more about the quality and type of ingredients, particularly the roll.
Regardless of the outcome, it looks like they managed to snag a cool location for the competition, filming right along Independence Mall in TVFF.com's favorite hangout, Old City.
