Gaby Perez, 16, thought she was going to work on a school project when she instead got to meet Flay.

Recalls Flay of his own culinary dreams: “I was 16. I dropped out of high school, so I needed a job and I started as a busboy . . . Two weeks later, I found myself in the kitchen. And then I started thinking about going to culinary school. So I went to get my [GED] so I could go to culinary school” at 18.

Of Perez, Flay said, “The future is very bright for Gaby.”

Flay’s even invited her on his TV show, “Beat Bobby Flay.”
