Grill-master Bobby Flay knows how to throw it down in the "Iron Chef America" kitchen. He creates Southwest-inspired dishes full of vibrant colors and flavors that pop. The Manhattan-born chef graduated from New York's prestigious French Culinary Institute with special honors after dropping out of high school. At the young age of 25, Flay was executive chef of restaurant Mesa Grill and later became a partner. He has since added four additional restaurants to his name. The accomplished chef battles challengers on both "Iron Chef America" and "Throwdown! With Bobby Flay." (Courtesy Food Network)
