Would you like to see a Catholic priest challenge chef Bobby Flay to a fajita cook-off?
Tune into Food Network’s “Throwdown! With Bobby Flay” tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern to see Father Leo Patalinghug take on the Iron Chef.
Father Patalinghug, who serves as director of pastoral field education for the seminary at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Md., has a ministry called Grace Before Meals, which is dedicated to fostering stronger communities through stronger families, one meal at a time.
“With God as my witness, I’m not afraid! Bring your fajitas; let’s throw down!” he exclaimed when Flay issued the challenge in June.
“I went mano a mano with an Iron Chef. It was a phenomenal experience,” the priest-chef told the Register’s Amy Smith for her article “Catholics in the Kitchen.”
We know we’ll be watching to see who wins!
