On Tuesday night, Harris Tweeted a photo of his backyard cookout with the Food Network chef in the Hamptons, with what appear to be a pair of sizzling steaks hitting the grill in the background. The “wowza” grilling session was a gift from Harris’ actor/chef husband David Burtka.
(Nice work, hubby!)
Flay, fresh off the heels of his recent divorce from actress Stephanie March, appeared to be getting along famously with the actor, with Harris calling him “an amazingly gracious host/chef.”
And after the cooking lesson, the group feasted heartily: grilled chicken, herb-sprinkled corn and cheeseburgers were all on the menu.
The Harris-Burtka clan—including twin children Harper and Gideon, 4—have been spending much of their summer in East Hampton, New York. Making the most of the warm weather, the couple has been Instagramming their adventures in fruit and veggie picking, clamming and baking. Following in the footsteps of Taylor Swift, the couple even fit in a cooking date with Ina Garten for an episode that will air on the Food Network later this year.
