The Food Network programs seen on-air are generally classified as a 'closed set,' meaning there is not a public audience. However, on special occasions, some programs will do a taping in front of a live audience. On those occasions, announcements are posted to our Sweepstakes and Contests page to outline the specific details.
Regarding Beat Bobby Flay, filming is very limited and we aren’t given advanced notice when filming will take place. If tickets are available, they can be reserved on the production company's website. If tickets are not currently available on their site, please check back to their page from time to time for your chance to be a part of the filming experience.
Additionally, our studios are working studios and ongoing tours would interfere with our ability to deliver top-notch programming to our viewers.
