Flowers, chocolates, perfume -- it's what most of us give the moms in our lives on Mother's Day. But why be conventional? After all, moms have many lives -- they work, they travel, they lead. Get a gift for the woman she is besides a mom.
I ventured out to the Hamptons last weekend for a little glimmer of Food Network royalty in Bobby Flay. The wonderful Chefs and Champagne® event honoring Flay was hosted by the James Beard Foundation and celebrated on the east end's Wölffer Estate Vineyard.
Food has always been the bread of Jonathan's life. Growing up in Smithtown, New York, he watched his parents cook and took charge of most of the meals when they split up and his mother got a full-time job.
Bobby Flay has an army of vocal detractors. Flay hate is spewed across the internet, seemingly related to his perceived cockiness. He acknowledges as much on his Twitter account, which announces, 'This is a no-hater zone.'
