Throwndown with Bobby Flay: Buffalo Wings
That Time That Food Network’s Bobby Flay Came to Buffalo
In 2007, Food Network’s ‘Throwndown’ with host Bobby Flay came to Buffalo. In this particular episode, Flay challenges local ‘Wing King’ (Drew Cerza) to a chicken wing (Buffalo Wing) cook-off challenge.

Drew thinks the Food Network has tapped him to be the city’s Wing Ambassador for a Food Network show called “Hall of Flame.” Little does Drew know that Bobby Flay will be firing up his burners to challenge him to a Chicken Wing Throwdown! Will Drew’s hometown advantage and unique flavor combinations put him out on top, or will Bobby and his spicy sweet recipe help him steal the Wing King crown?
Flay and Cerza each prepared their own wing sauce recipes and the wings were put up to a taste testing panel. After the votes were tallied, Cerza had won the challenge.
