Guess what? This sure happens in real life. People go into business not knowing exactly what lies ahead. I remember being shocked, alarmed even, by the amount of work that goes into running a bakery. Going from a part-time side gig/hobby to a full-time business was an eye opener. A lot of problems that Bobby Flay found within the first day of working with the businesses, I also had and will always work on. For someone like me who didn't go to culinary school or work a day in the industry (gasp!) prior to opening my business, the show is providing me with free education. Bobby Flay scores major points for being patient with the business owners and for sharing his expertise and even his recipes with them. I watched all four episodes in one sitting and can't wait to watch upcoming episodes, with my pen and notepad beside me.
