"Will you take us through your recipe — your losing recipe — for eggplant parmesan? Show us how a losing recipe is put together," said host Jimmy Kimmel to chef Bobby Flay before their epic eggplant throwdown began. Apparently Kimmel has been training for the competition for months?
"Look at how professionally they're eating," said Kimmel of the judges Russ Parsons (food editor at the LA Times), Lesley Barger Suter (LA Mag) and our very own Eater LA editor Kat Odell. "They know to use the fork and they're really chopping in there."
Said Kimmel to Flay, who feared never being invited back on the show if he won: "If you win, this will go on and on and on." Can you guess who won?
