A new Throwdown-type series called Beat Bobby Flay got picked up for a full season by the Food Network back in October and there's early world on some of the guest judges. To refresh your memory, here's the premise: "Two talented chefs go head to head for the chance to Beat Bobby Flay. To get to Bobby the chefs must first face off against each other, creating a spectacular dish with a secret ingredient of Bobby's choice." The show filmed recently, and Food Network Gossip has leaked some of the early judges/competitors. On the list: NYC chefs Jonathan Waxman (Barbuto), Justin Warner (Do or Dine) as well as Scott Conant (Scarpetta); Katie Lee (a Food Network newbie), Giada De Laurentiis, Sunny Anderson, Eden Grinshpan, Brian Duffy, Michael Symon and Mo Rocca. Look for it to air sometime in March.
