The "It Must've Been Love" episode of Beat Bobby Flay, featuring Tampa's chefy couple Rosana Rivera and Ricardo Castro, which was supposed to air on October 24, is set to finally make its way on the small screen Thursday, December 26.
Debuting on the Food Network at 10 p.m., Chefs Rosana Rivera and Ricardo Castro of Xilo and Kofe at Hall on Franklin, and former owners of Piquant in Hyde Park Village, will battle against each other to create a dish highlighting an ingredient of the celebrity Iron Chef's choosing. The winner of that food battle will face celebrity chef Bobby Flay in a classic, high-stress cooking competition with a dish of the competitor's choosing.
The final dish will be judged by a celebrity panel consisting of Akhtar Nawab and Ivy Stark.
The local chef couple will be watching their Food Network debut at their restaurant Xilo at The Hall on Franklin in Tampa Heights on Thursday, December 26, starting at 8:30 p.m. with close friends and family. Which means you can come to and get in on the excitement.
