Local Chef Competes On Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay”

Did you know a local chef was on the Food Network recently? Chef Whitney Thomas had the chance of competing on “Beat Bobby Flay”. She is the Chef de Cuisine at Mico, which you can find at the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Uptown.

If you’re not familiar with this show, top chefs from around the country go head-to-head. The winner of the first round gets a chance to beat the host, Bobby Flay. Last week, people watched as Chef Whitney Thomas stepped into the kitchen.

Today on QC@3, Chef Whitney joined us on the show to step us through this amazing experience. Chef Whitney says her journey started last October. She says it was during this time she went up to New York to film the show. She said she flew up for 2 days, spent 8 hours on set, and a year later it aired on TV. Chef Whitney tells us the producers of the show messaged her on Instagram and they quickly got the ball rolling. She tells us she jumped at the opportunity because she loves watching the show and she wanted to be apart of it.

If you didn’t get a chance to watch, Chef Whitney faced a tough competitor in the first round and didn’t make it through to Beat Bobby Flay.
