Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis’ new food show follows them around Italy


Now you can watch Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis explore Italy and its finest cuisines.

The two celebrity chefs star in “Bobby and Giada in Italy,” which debuted Monday on the new streaming platform discovery+. 

Flay and De Laurentiis spent a month together in Rome and Tuscany eating their favorite Italian dishes and immersing themselves in the country’s history while filming the four-episode series, a press release said.

According to the release, the show was inspired by Flay, who has been to Rome before, but wanted to really learn about the culture with a local — so he reached out to De Laurentiis, who grew up in Italy. 

“We’re friends, we obviously both love Italy and we’re both on the same network, so it made perfect sense,” Flay told People. “So that’s what we did. And I have to say, I think it’s probably the most beautiful thing that I’ve ever shot, for sure.”
