In a Season 6 episode of “Beat Bobby Flay,” the host made the unfortunate mistake of jamming his knife in a Kitchen-Aid stand mixer. Flay was competing with chef Bruce Kalman, cooking spaghetti carbonara. In his attempt to make homemade pasta, Flay got his chef’s knife stuck in the mixer’s pasta attachment.
His good friend Sunny Anderson was a judge on this episode and certainly can’t forget what happened. When Flay posted a photo on instagram of her homemade pasta, Anderson lovingly reminded her of the knife incident. She joked, “Remember that time (at Beat Bobby Flay camp), when you were trying to make pasta and your knife got stuck in the stand mixer attachment?” And went on to exclaim, “You’ve come a long way, baby! (laughing emojis).” The Iron Chef turned out to be a good sport, as he replied, “I’ll never live it.”
Fans were quick to notice the witty banter between the two, with some noting that they seemed like family rather than friends, while others seemed more familiar with Anderson’s frequent trolling of Flay on Instagram. On Flay’s birthday, Anderson job a throwback photo of Flay in a Smokey Bear Ranger costume. As she teased that he was doing his “I just made crispy rice!” stance, she ended her post by showering him with love and affection.
