Bobby Flay wins chicken tikka masala Throwdown v. Marianna

Wow. Season 8 of Throwdown is starting out well for Bobby Flay. Tonight, he won the chicken tikka masala Throwdown against Marianna from Venezuela (who married an Indian man who turned her on to Indian cooking). Bobby thought he was going to lose after he put too much cumin spice in his chicken, but apparently the judges had “asbestos” tongues, according to Bobby. Marianna was gracious in defeat, but added at the end that she knows her dish is better than Bobby’s! Bobby improves to 2-1 for the season.
