“Being invited to appear on the Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay was an amazing experience I’ve always dreamed about. To have the opportunity to meet and compete against an icon, Iron Chef, and restaurateur such as Bobby Flay was surreal. What I am proud most of was the opportunity to represent Detroit, to showcase the Yum Village brand, and to highlight the beautiful cuisine and culture that comes from the Caribbean and west Africa,” said Ihentuge in a press release.
