Shannon Bard’s episode of Bobby Flay’s new show “Beat Bobby Flay” is airing next month on April 10 on the Food Network!  Shannon is the co-owner and chef at Zapoteca restaurant in Portland.  

On the April 10th episode Bard will be going up against Kamel Rose, executive chef at Tribeca Grill in New York City.  The premise of the show is that the two chefs will go head to head competing against each other creating a dish with a secret ingredient chosen by Flay.  Judges then choose the winning dish.  Some of the judges on Bard’s episode will be celebrity chef Michael Symon and comedienne Ali Wentworth.

Tune into the Food Network on April 10 at 10 PM to watch Bard in action and represent Portland!
