Mission + Market’s Executive Chef Ian Winslade is the most recent winner of Food Network’s famed culinary competition, “Beat Bobby Flay”. During the episode titled “A Proper Smackdown”, Winslade defeated Iron Chef Bobby Flay following his triumph against Southern Chef Geoff Rhyne.

In his Food Network debut, Winslade emerged victorious under intense pressure as he created two dishes on the spot. The first dish incorporated the secret ingredient of the episode, Asian pear with an Asian pear salad crafted with Fresno Chile, ginger and a Yuzu vinaigrette. The dish which ultimately beat Bobby Flay was a new take on a traditional English dish that Winslade grew up eating – Fisherman’s Pie with carrots and leeks and a fennel and asparagus salad.
