Bobby Flay to Be First Chef With Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Bobby Flay, television personality, serial restaurateur and cookbook author will be the first chef to have his celebrity recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Flay’s first cooking job, at 17 years old, was in the kitchen of Joe Allen’s. The Theater District restaurant’s namesake owner was sufficiently impressed with Flay to support his career by covering his tuition to the French Culinary Institute, now the International Culinary Center.
