On June 19th at 8 PM, Bobby Flay and Rachael Ray will be speaking at an event hosted by the American Society of Association Executives and the Center for Association Leadership.The event, at The John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, is part of the Nation's Capital Distinguished Speakers Series and will involve a night of discussion about Rachael and Bobby's rise to in the ranks of celebrity chefdom and their views on food and our society. The program will be followed by a question and answer session with the audience.
I was thinking the other night about what I might ask both Bobby and Rachel. Some potential questions for Bobby Flay:
Can you introduce me to David Cassidy? (sorry, I couldn't help myself)
Charcoal, propane, or smoke?
So, exactly how many Food Network shows are you on now?
Are you sick of people asking you about the time you stood on the cutting board on Iron Chef?
Potential questions for Rachael Ray:
What does it feel like to own the Food Network?
On how many episodes of $40 a day have you been stranded because you ran out of money?
Do you ever want to punch Sandra Lee? If so please describe your perfect table-scape.
But all joking aside, this sounds like it will be a fun and educational event. It's not everyday that we get to pick the brains of successful chefs like Bobby Flay and Rachael Ray. As food television veterans, they can provide us insight on where they think the future of the food entertainment industry, the role food plays in our culture, families and social relationships, and perhaps some secrets on making that perfect risotto.
