Celebrity chef Bobby Flay just gave fans a peek inside his fridge!
The Food Network star did a tour of his refrigerator for Misfit Market’s Instagram page, featuring a five-minute look inside his enormous fridge.
“You loved @BobbyFlay’s pantry tour so much that now we’re bringing you a look inside his fridge. Surprise! It looks a lot more like yours than you’d think,” they captioned the video. “There’s celery that hangs out in the back of his crisper, lots of mayonnaise, and apples and grapes for snacking.”

Flay started his tour by showing the drinks that he keeps in his refrigerator, including cow’s milk and organic grapefruit juice. He also drinks Chinotto, a sour Italian orange-flavored soda. He joked that he might be the “only person in the world” to still be drinking whole milk, given the plethora of alternative milk options available on store shelves.
He said that he will occasionally keep fruit in the fridge, like avocados, but only when they’re ripe.
One of the biggest staples that he keeps in his refrigerator is eggs. “I like cooking eggs in the morning, or sometimes for like a late-night bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich,” he explained.
Fans also got a peek at a variety of condiments, including mustard, what appear to be two bottles of mayonnaise, maple syrup, and Justin’s peanut butter. It seems that he’s also a fan of using Kerrygold Irish butter.
Bobby Flay Keeps Caviar In His Refrigerator
Although his pantry did include plenty of common staples, he did admit to having a bowl of mussels and some “awesome caviar” that was given to him by a friend. “This is such a chef-y thing to have some caviar in your refrigerator,” he joked.
Although he doesn’t know “a ton about every cheese in the world,” the “Beat Bobby Flay” star still showed off a fully-stocked cheese drawer. “What’s really great is if you go to a good start that has a good cheesemonger… ask them to suggest some things to you and just taste them,” he said. “You’re not going to like every single thing but it’s the only way you’re going to learn about different cheese.”
Flay also revealed that he likes to keep “good bacon” on hand for his late-night sandwiches. He also keeps shishito peppers and his go-to ingredient: Calabrian chiles.
He also revealed that, “Like everybody, I have celery at the bottom of my refrigerator waiting to make soup.”

Back in January, Bobby Flay had given fans a tour of his expansive pantry. In the caption, Misfits Market wrote, “Chef-in-residence Bobby Flay (@bobbyflay) knows a thing or two about a well-stocked pantry. In his own, he has all of the obvious must-haves like Italian pastas, hot sauces, and more mustards than we can count on one hand. But there are some surprising favorites in there, too. Think: curry paste, canned tomatoes, and a basic can of chickpeas that help craft easy weeknight dinners in minutes.”
Flay revealed that he has “an array of dried pastas” in “different shapes, different sizes, and different flavors.”
“I buy a lot of pasta from Italy ’cause I love the flour that they use there,” he explained.“This is like, a spaghetti, we have some bucatini of course. I actually have some elbows you can use for a cool version of mac and cheese. This is some squid ink pasta, shells that I use when I’m cooking shell fish and stuff like that. It’s also black pasta so it’s very cool. Good flavor, a little briny.”
He also has an entire section just dedicated to chiles, especially his favorite Calabrian chilies.
“People make fun of me for using these so much, especially on ‘Beat Bobby Flay,’ but in my restaurant in Malfa, we use a ton of these,” he shared. “It adds great flavor to food.”
He also revealed that his secret “go-to ingredient” is actually anchovies. “I put anchovies in so many things and people don’t know it,” he confessed. “Especially when I’m cooking seafood, I crush up a bunch of anchovies, put it in the sauce. It just enhances it so much more.”
